This PowerPoint presentation goes along with the SLAM extended response acronym:
State part of the question in your answer.
Locate evidence from the story.
Add your own ideas.
Makes a meaningful conclusion.
I use this with my students when I introduce the concept, and go back to it often throughout the year. The presentation contains 10 slides, with the last few being a whole group "try it" extended response!
**NOTE - I have some really fun fonts in the presentation, but for some reason the thumbnails do not show them, they are there I promise!
