Cloze Notes that go along with the anchor chart and lecture
Several activities requiring students to refer to the text and provide evidence of what they learned (evidence/text based reading, cite the line/paragraph/page, etc.).
"I love the clear font and thank you for including the story as well as all of the worksheets. What a fabulous resource to add to my 7th grade reading curriculum. Thank you for sharing."
"My kids are able to infer like no tomorrow, but when it comes to backing their thinking up with evidence they are like deer in headlights. I've been looking for a lesson to break it down for them in much smaller chunks - I think this will do the trick! Thank you!"
