This graphic organizer guides students in writing detailed responses to text questions. Students write their own thoughts and ideas on the left and support those ideas by citing evidence from the original text studied on the right (noting the page reference).
The directions page at the end will aid teachers in creating their own open-ended questions. This is especially useful when using textbooks adopted prior to implementing the Common Core standards.
CCR Reading Anchor Standard 1 - Cite strong and thorough textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text, including determining where the text leaves matters uncertain.
