Product Description
This PowerPoint gives a step-by-step process to creating an effective TDA as well as possible TDA questions to use with the novel Wonder. As more states throughout the country are moving to text-dependent analysis questions for the writing portion of standardized tests to ensure our students are college and career ready, it is important that we find a logical way to prepare our students.

I did this by first focusing on strong body paragraphs with models provided. This is the most important part of a TDA because it is where students are showing their thinking and analyzing skills. I created the acronym “TEE” to help students remember strong body paragraphs have a topic sentence/claim, evidence, and explanation. I then modeled how to create an effective introduction and conclusion.

As we go throughout the year, we will work on adding three paragraph bodies.
In my ELA classroom, I teach ELA and Writing through thematic units revolving around a novel. Wonder is one of the novels we cover. Instead of making TDAs an isolated aspect of my classroom, I have used Wonder to teach students how to closely analyze text using the TDA process.

This can be used in grade levels 5-8 and also as a guide to teach TDAs with other novels, poetry, and informational texts. I hope you enjoy this and find it helpful for both you and your students!
