This is a pack of posters for Upper Elementary Reading Teachers encouraging students to utilize text based evidence stems. I know that the new STAAR test in Texas focuses test based evidence. Teaching your students to utilize these skills when discussing text and/or during literature circles will increase their comprehension skills.
Please don't just slap these posters on the wall. Explicitly teach how to use these "stems" and model how students should utilize the prompts.
This file contains posters, a bookmark (for students & parents to utilize), ink friendly task cards and an interactive notebooking component.
