PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Text Dependent Reading Analysis Pack for Close Reading & Test Prep:

This set includes 62 pages of resources to teach students how to write text-dependent reading analysis responses. These responses can be used in conjunction with Close Reading, Test Prep, and/or Self-Selected Reading.

Teach your students how to respond to text-dependent questions with the simple 5-step process outlined by the RACES acronym.

R - Restate key words from the prompt
A - Add one extra detail
C - Cite evidence directly from the text
E - Explain each piece of evidence
S - Sum it up

This set includes everything you will need in order to teach your students the RACES process. With these resources, you will be able to help your students experience success with text-dependent analyses.

Resources included:
* 6 RACES anchor charts
* sample fiction passage with a sample black-and-white and color-coded response
* reference sheet with signal words and phrases
* 3 graphic organizers
* blank student response pages with and without scoring rubrics
* 25 fiction response prompts
* 20 nonfiction response prompts

The response prompts can be used with any fiction or nonfiction text in conjunction with close reading and/or state test preparation. Each document has been carefully created to meet the requirements of the Common Core State Standards for text- dependent analyses.

The thought of writing a thorough text analysis can be daunting for young students. However, with simple scaffolds, this task can be mastered with practice. Kids thrive when they are given concrete memory devices that simplify complex concepts. I use the acronym RACES to break the process down into a basic 5-step procedure. After the process has been practiced and memorized with teacher assistance, students can begin answering text dependent questions independently with greater confidence and success.
