I am excited about a new product that I just finished. The Common Core standards focus on students’ ability to read closely to determine what a text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it.
Rather than asking students questions about their prior knowledge or experience, the standards expect students to respond to questions that can only be answered by referring explicitly back to the text in front of them.
This resource contains 16 text dependent questions. It can be used as a center or for small groups. Click on page below to view this item at my Teachers Notebook store.
