Common Core Text Evidence Exit Slips
With the new Common Core Standards, there is much emphasis on text evidence. Students need to be able to find proof in the text when responding to literature and informational selections. On the Smarter Balanced Assessments, students are asked to use details from the text to support their answers. To take it a step further, they are also asked to click on or highlight parts of the text to prove their answers.
To help prepare my students for this type of questioning, I created exit slips that can be used with the different texts that are used in my classroom (anthology selections, novels, periodicals, etc.) These exit slips can be used as practice or a quick assessment.
To practice finding text evidence, I focused on the following basic ideas:
- Theme (RL)
- Characters (RL)
- Setting (RL)
- Events (RL)
- Point of View (RL)
- Main Idea & Supporting Details (RI)
- Text Structure (RI)
- Word Meaning (RL/RI)
I also provided a generic exit slip, in which you can write in a specific question and photocopy, or have students copy down a specific question.
I hope that this product will help to give your students the practice they need for finding text evidence.
