This product can be modified for any texts (fiction or non-fiction) that you are reading. Once you pose a question, students can use this as a way to defend and share with partners about their stance/position on a topic.
This sample has text evidence and statements from the perspective of a certain chapter in the text "The Journey Solo."
You can modify to whatever question, text and text evidence that you will provide in the particular areas. If sheet is printed double sided or two pages, translations for the text evidence can also be provided for beginner ELLs. Highlighted areas show where the resource can be modified for your use of specific texts.
1st page (emerging/transitioning)- For students that can produce their own thesis, but have options for the text evidence.
2nd page (entering/emerging students)- For students that might need thesis written for them, but they have to choose the evidence that corresponds with the evidence.
**For higher students, they can provide own text evidence on the right side if left blank**
