I don't know about your students, but mine need extra GUIDED practice interpreting test language/test questions and prompts to go back to the text and read it again. They need practice with the teacher in small groups before they can be expected to answer these types of questions independently.
Use these passages in guided reading groups where you can work through these TEI-like questions together. Then release them to their seats to independently practice one of the following items.
Included are three days of Guided Reading Lesson passages with test questions for your reading groups and three formative assessments they can do independently. Rubric included.
