My Text Dependent Question resources are the perfect way to get your kiddos back into the text finding the answers to those higher level questions. They are a great way to start prepping those second graders for the following testing year.
We use beginning chapter books and challenging novels in our enrichment groups and were looking for ways to go beyond the "in your face" straight forward comprehension questions and to get our students to go deeper. One of the problems we faced with close reads was all the text marking.
Here we are able to take a variety of questions and have our students dig through the text but instead of marking up our novels, they are showing their understanding of finding themes, defending their claims, comparing, and analyzing their reading.
Each one of our text dependent resources has at least 10 questions which vary in type and complexity. There is a journal cover page if you want to print all the questions off and create a mini-workbook. Or if you would prefer picking and choosing which questions you have that option.
Our text dependent questions are ink friendly. All black and white. They are really simplistic and clean. We steered away from too many distracting graphics and focused on the content instead.
PLEASE NOTE, the novel is broken into parts and the text dependent questions are labeled with the part of the book and the chapter title to help keep you organized!!
