Locating and using evidence from texts is an important aspect of the Common Core State Standards, not to mention success in college or the workplace. Locating evidence in a text begins with framing an investigation, asking a question, or identifying a problem to solve.
Students must read closely, annotating and sourcing, to find evidence that allows them to answer the question or solve a problem. And students need intentional instruction in integrating the evidence they have collected into coherent discussions and writings that demonstrate their understanding of the content. In this session, we focus on a process that will ensure that evidence becomes a signature piece of the work students produce.
