RI.5.8 I can find evidence from the text to support what the author believes or wants me to believe about a certain topic or event.
This product includes 4 separate activities. Each activity includes an informational reading passages, a question that has students identify the author's opinion, and a highlighting activity that requires students to use text evidence to support their thinking. You can use this in a variety of ways: I prefer to teach the skill using the first activity, have students try the second activity on their own or with a buddy and then correct it, and assess using the third activity. All three of course could be used as practice and/or assessments, as well.
