Do you want to teach your students to write in complete sentences when they answer questions? This PowerPoint lesson focuses on how to turn the question around and provide answers in a way that puts the question in the answer. This resource contains a 44-slide PowerPoint, a matching companion handout, and SIX worksheets that can be used to provide a follow-up practice opportunity.

I have also included a document that contains Google Slides links. Students can complete the companion handout and the practice worksheets on a device, if you wish.

The PowerPoint contains the following format:

Slides 1-7: Introduction

Slides 8-28: Instructions on how to Turn the Question Around

Slides 29-34: Practice with Personal Questions

Slides 35-39: Practice Slides: Four Fiction Passages (Students read a passage and answer two comprehension questions.)

Slides 40-44: Practice Slides: Four Nonfiction Passages (Students read a passage and answer two comprehension questions.)

The SIX printables provide an excellent follow-up opportunity for your students to practice the skill of restating the question when forming an answer. The worksheet packet features three fiction passages and three nonfiction passages. After reading each passage, students answer three comprehension questions.

Also, you DO have my permission to convert this PowerPoint to a Google Slides format to share with your students.
