Presentation on theme: "EVIDENCE BASED WRITING"— Presentation transcript:


2 Welcome and Introduction:
WELCOME!! This powerpoint is based on lessons that will help students develop strategies and practice writing a well developed evidence based response to specific guided comprehension question. Students will be able to work through reading selections and use specific graphic organizers to write an evidence based response to a specific comprehension question.

3 Learning Standards: Common Core State Standards
Reading Standards for Literature RL.5.1 Quote accurately from a text when explaining what the text says explicitly and when drawing inferences from the text Reading Standards for Informational Text RI.5.8 Explain how an author uses reasons and evidence to support particular points in a text, identifying which reasons and evidence support which point(s) Writing Standards W Recall relevant information from experiences or gather relevant information from print and digital sources; summarize or paraphrase information in notes and finished work, and provide a list of resources.

4 Learning Objectives: Students Will Be Able To (SWBAT):
Complete the graphic organizer to find evidence from the text (cite the paragraph) Identify key vocabulary words in the text using context clues Determine how to find evidence to support the claim Write a detailed response to a given question about the passage and support you response with evidence from the text Determine and identify specific strategies to write out a well thought out response to specific questions related to the text Answer guided questions using evidence from the text to show, model comprehension skills Read orally and independently with fluency Maintain portfolio of completed work to be used during student led conferences at the end of the project

5 Questions to Think About??
What is evidence? Where can we look to find our evidence today? How do we find the evidence needed to support the claim? Why do we need evidence? When do we look for evidence? Will a graphic organizer help you determine types of evidence you will use to support the claim?

REMEMBER to reference our writing scoring guide!! 4 ADVANCED 3 PROFICIENT 2 BASIC 1 BELOW BASIC

7 Our Acronyms: Remember our Acronyms for writing a BCR (Brief Constructed Response): RACE and SLAMS R Restate the Question. A Answer the Question. C Cite evidence from the text, graphs, data, or pictures. E Extend your thinking. Make a connection to self, another text or the world.

8 Acronyms: SLAMS S Sentence: Write your answer in complete sentences.
L Lines: The number of lines on answer sheet gives you an idea of how long your answer should be. A Answer: Answer the question the test asks. Answer all parts of the question. M Mechanics: Mechanics are punctuation, capitalization, spelling, grammar and usage. S Support: Remember to support your answer with details from the selection.

9 Informational Text: Remember informational text is just that…information about a specific topic or content!! Informational text may use to compare/ contrast, demonstrate cause/ effect relationships and may use charts or graphs. Textbooks are sources of informational text we have used in class. Can you think of any other forms of informational text we have also used in class? As you read text remember to think about the strategies for answering specific types of questions. Think about who and what the passage is about. Think about the question being asked and support your answer with evidence from the text.

10 QAR Strategy: QAR is a strategy that helps students understand types of questions. Understanding the type of question being asked will allow you to be able to decide and develop a strategy to answer the question. Four Types of Questions examined using the QAR strategy: Right There Questions Think and Search Questions Author and You Questions On My Own Questions For information and examples check this link..

16 How I will use this lesson:
I will implement this lesson with my students as reinforcement and practice in which they can complete the tasks independently. They will have time during our learning stations block to rotate through the computers to view the presentation and complete the activities. Students will be able to decide if they want to send their work as an attachment or save to the desk top. Students will be able to print their work samples and keep for their portfolios and final evaluation My target audience will be my students this summer in which I will make changes as needed and add passages as well in hopes to finalize the tasks for next year.

17 Resources: Here are some GREAT websites and resources that I used to gather information to design this powerpoint lesson! Michelle Kwan Heart of a Champion an Autobiography Houghton Mifflin J. David Cooper, John Pikulski *The text passage about Michelle Kwan is a shorter version of the story in our student reading books. It is found in the 5th grade series Theme 2, Give It All You’ve Got.
