Complex texts require students to draw conclusions about what they read. The Drawing Conclusions lesson, for grades 4–8, will help your students learn to use text evidence to form a new idea. This lesson includes a definition, an explanation of how the skill is used, an example, and practice questions with excerpts from real books. The Drawing Conclusions lesson can kick off a reading lesson or serve as an impromptu refresher of skills already introduced. The lesson also includes a separate Answer Key PDF.
