Transcript of Kenny's Inquiry
Is the student's response based on factual evidence from the text?
How do I get my students to find evidence in text when they are answering comprehension questions?
When faced with a comprehension question, students will look for relevant information in the text, mark it, and answer the question clearly and factually.

Creating effective comprehension questions to measure students' skills
Finding the time to work with my focal students to improve their skills.
What I Learned
Teaching students to reread and look for evidence in text is a good practice and leads to more thoughtful, diligent responses.
For students with weak comprehension, rereading to find evidence is not sufficient. Sometimes they will reread and not be able to relate what they are reading to the question. Sometimes they will not actually understand what the question is asking.
Do teach and expect students to reread and mark evidence when answering comprehension questions.
Spend time teaching students how to interpret questions, how to understand what is being asked, and how to check if their response has answered the question.
Thanks for watching!
