Today I was teaching a lesson about, when answering questions about a piece of text, how to refer to that text in your answers.
Monday, October 7, 2013
For example, a question might say, "Name one living thing found in the desert ecosystem."
Instead of making answers up, I would like students to refer to the information found in the provided text.
We practiced using sentence frames such as:
"On page ___, the author states _____."
"On page ___, paragraph ___, the text says ___________."
After much group practice, I gave them a question directly from their science text to work on with a partner.
But first, I checked if anyone had any questions.
And question number one was:
Can we use our books?
