Transcript of Wendy's Inquiry
How do I get students to support their answers using evidence from the text?
To have students clearly write answers about a text using evidence FROM the text.
When given a question about a text they've read, they will be able to answer correctly and give a supporting detail from the text.
What I Learned
I need to be very specific about what I expect from an answer that has evidence from the text. I need to give explicit examples of a "good" answer vs a "poor" answer.
It's important to get students into the habit of rereading for different purposes. Sometimes it's to get the "gist" of the story and other times it's to answer a specific question.
Starting with pre-k, students need to learn how to answer questions giving evidence from the text. This is a skill that takes time to master!
How to help students recognize where in the text they would find the answer to comprehension questions. (especially if you have to make an inference from the text)
It's OK to let your question evolve over the year. My focus started with helping students find evidence in the text and highlighting it.... to using the evidence in the text to write a complete, correct, and explicit answer to a question.
