Transcript of Textual Evidence

Learning Targets:

explicit
textual evidence
Textual Evidence
Textual Evidence
Tim and Bobby were hot and sweaty as they sat outside the principal’s office. Dirt was smeared on both of their faces, and they could hear their teacher’s voice as she told the principal what happened on the playground. Tim sneered at Bobby, and Bobby returned the angry glare.

Example:
Read the following paragraph.
Tim and Bobby were hot and sweaty as they sat outside the principal’s office. Dirt was smeared on both of their faces, and they could hear their teacher’s voice as she told the principal what happened on the playground. Tim sneered at Bobby, and Bobby returned the angry glare.
What Happened On the Playground?
I can...
...define "inference."

...define "textual evidence."

...answer explicit and inferential questions about a literary or informational text.

...explain how a reader uses textual evidence to make an inference.


To Respond to Reading Effectively...
...we combine TEXTUAL EVIDENCE with our LIFE EXPERIENCE.

I know from TEXTUAL EVIDENCE that Tim and Bobby are sitting outside the principal's office.

I know from EXPERIENCE that people who see the principal are in trouble.

Therefore, I can conclude that Tim and Bobby are in trouble.
Conclusion
Some terms you will need to know:
inference
An inference is an educated guess based on information from a text.
From this, the reader can make an educated guess, or INFERENCE that Tim and Bobby were fighting on the playground.
Explicit information is information that is obvious in a text. You don't have to guess about it.
An explicit question might ask, "Where are Tim and Bobby?" You can easily answer that they are sitting outside the principal's office because this is stated clearly in the text.
Textual evidence is specific information from a text, used to support an idea about the text.
For example, if we INFER that Tim and Bobby were fighting, then we must provide TEXTUAL EVIDENCE to support that INFERENCE.
Evidence #1
They are sitting outside the principal's office.
Evidence #2
Tim is sneering at Bobby
Evidence #3
Bobby is glaring at Tim as well.
STATEMENT:

I can infer that Tim and Bobby got into a fight on the playground.
Analysis:
Most of the time, kids who sit outside the principal's office have gotten into trouble. Therefore, they must have done something wrong.
Analysis: A sneer is a really mean way to look at someone. Therefore, I can assume that Tim is angry.
Analysis: If Bobby is angry too, they must have gotten into it on the playground.
Your Assignment:
I sat with my toes in the hot sand
digging a hole with my new shovel and
pail. I turned to grab my sandwich and
noticed a seagull flying away with it.
Since I had no lunch, I grabbed my
snorkel and headed into the waves.
Read the paragraph, and answer the question that follows, providing at least 3 pieces of TEXTUAL evidence that you analyze using your EXPERIENCE.
Question To Answer
(in 1 paragraph):

Where am I?
