Response to Literature Graphic Organizers
• Emphasis on citing evidence to support opinion.

****Includes multiple sentence frames for students to choose from for each paragraph with an emphasis on practicing referring back to text to quote evidence.****
These graphic organizers were designed to incorporate the Common Core Standards’ emphasis on text dependency and using evidence from the text to support student responses. Students still need to connect what they are reading to their own worldview while integrating the new skills to be developed in the new standards. A response to literature essay is a great platform for the marriage of these two skills, while working on paragraph formation and sequencing. These graphic organizers, therefore, can be used when first introducing both concepts of making connections and/or using evidence.
