I have noticed that many students today cannot properly answer a short response question. There has been a huge shift back towards students being able to restate the question in their answers. In addition to that, common core wants students to use text based evidence in their work. I use this in my classroom to teach my students first verbally, and then in written form; how to answer questions. We use this method in all subjects. The result is a perfect 4-5 sentence question with text based evidence.
