With common core short answer responses being all about the text evidence, students often don't know what to do after they have provided a quote. So, they often repeat their quote, thinking it's in their own words since they removed the quotation marks. Teach students that after using a quote, they have two options: paraphrase it and/or offer an inference. This activity and graphic organizer helps students learn the differences between quoting, paraphrasing, and inferring, ALL AT ONCE and ALL on ONE PAGE!! (This product is very unlike yet related to my product "Quoting and Paraphrasing"). This activity can also be used to bridge reading and writing.
Teachers/students choose ANY text. Then, students will fill out a definition and how-to introduction. Next, students will identify and record 3 "inferable" quotes, paraphrase their chosen quotes, and then use sentence starter prompts to record their very own inference. A shorter version is included for additional practice once the introductory lesson is given. See my Facebook page, Reading Response Creations, for a video of all of the pages in this file!!
