Chances are, you are hearing a lot about citing evidence, text dependent questions, and close reading. They all go hand in hand. With the new standards, students will be required to cite evidence using their text. This resource will help you teach students HOW to answer questions while providing evidence from the text.
If you are having trouble with students answering questions with things like,
"Cause she felt excited about the trip"
"Because page 45 says photosynthesis does that"
this resource will be beneficial in your classroom. This teaches students how to respond to questions by restating the question, answering it in their own words, providing examples from the text, and providing an ending or concluding statement.
