Text Dependent Analysis is the type of writing essay questions that are being used on standardized testing. Students need to learn how to respond to these questions and to learn how to construct good paragraphs.
In this packet there are:
Text Dependent Question Notes and Explanation of the RACES Strategy
2 TDQ's (Text Dependent Questions)
- Each one has a graphic organizer and final paragraph paper.
- The first TDQ has a teacher guide and example question. I also explain how I used it in class as a model.
I have used this with the novel, "Wonder" by RJ Palacio that my class is reading at the moment. However, you can simply change the question to fit whatever novel or story you are reading to practice using this strategy. THIS HAS REALLY HELPED MY STUDENTS IN THIER WRITING! Remember, it's all about the I do, We do, You do mentality. MODEL! MODEL! MODEL!
