This Step-by-Step Text Evidence unit is a complete, NO-Prep unit with a variety of activities to help students learn an effective approach to analyzing text and increasing reading comprehension. Through anchor charts, modeling, mentor text, differentiated interactive pages, practice, task cards, and differentiated informative reading passages, students will have a thorough understanding of how to provide text evidence.
Since some teachers or districts use the acronym RACE and others use ACE, I included separate files with the same instruction, but different acronyms.
For each of the 4 lengthy informative reading passages, there are THREE VERSIONS FOR DIFFERENTIATION ranging from Lexile levels 400-850. (Grade levels 2-4) These are great for DISTANCE LEARNING and AT HOME LEARNING!
VERSION 1- LEXILE LEVEL 400 (Gr. 2)
VERSION 2- LEXILE LEVEL 700 (Gr. 3)
VERSION 3- LEXILE LEVELS 835-850 (Gr. 4)
