Many students are familiar with quoting evidence from text to support their opinions. However, very few students are taught to recognize the four different types of evidence in text and how to use them to support their opinions about their stories. This engaging video lesson uses a beautiful picture book read out loud to teach middle school students about sophisticated levels of evidence, (the four types). This is a packaged plug and play lesson that will lay the foundation for your entire year on citing evidence to support opinions. Because a picture book is used, this video lesson is easily accessible to all learners even though it contains sophisticated concepts.
Use the video as a teaching aid, leave it for a sub, or even share it with a parent of an absent student - or simply show the video DIRECTLY to your students, pausing at certain times while your students follow on with the steps given.
ALL SLIDES shown in the video are offered as supplementary material FREE with this video.
Simply sit back and let this video do your teaching. I will be adding dozens of teaching videos similar to this one that uses this same approach to lesson delivery.
