Description

Prove it! Show me the evidence! Do you find yourself repeating these words on a daily basis? Like you, my goal is for my students to move beyond a literal understanding and to a deeper and more critical evaluation of the text. I am constantly asking my students to go BACK to the text to support their answers with EVIDENCE.

This bundle was created using the Common Core Reading Informational Text Standards. The passages allow students to write directly on the text so that they can support their answers with reasons. Throughout the passages students will be required to determine the main idea, find evidence that supports the main idea, use context clues to determine the meaning of various words, create subheadings or discover the importance of the subheadings given, find reasons to support various points given by the author, explain the importance of the diagram or words in bold, make inferences, etc. I have also included some short passages that require students to underline their answers directly in the text with various colors.

I had a hard time giving this bundle a title, because it can be used for many purposes… close reading, a quick assessment, guided reading groups, whole class instruction, the possibilities are endless.

In my own classroom I typically use these passages during my guided reading instruction. I have also used them as a quick assessment. During the first reading, I have my students number the paragraphs or subheadings. During the second reading my students take notes directly on the text. They make inferences, draw conclusions, circle vocabulary, etc. As my students complete the comprehension activities, I ALWAYS require them to underline, circle, or highlight the evidence in the text.

I hope your students enjoy these activities as much as mine do!
