Evidence Tracker for Reading Comprehension & Argumentative Writing

Hi Everyone!

Caitlin here from EB Academic Camps and The Styled Teacher where I blog about teacher fashion. I won't take up too much of your time today because I'm sure you're either thoroughly enjoying your Spring Break, or you're thisssss close to freedom for a week or so :)

I have to be honest. I never had to do test prep in my classroom. There were never any state tests.* No tests that dictated the future of my students. My future. My school's future.

I had none of it. And it was awesome. 

So, with that being said, today I simply want to share a really awesome resource with you that will be a HUGE help for your students in your classroom.

One of my biggest areas of focus when I was teaching was in evidence-based, argumentative writing. To help students keep track of evidence while reading a chapter, studying a poem, or throughout the course of an entire novel, I had them keep track of evidence that would later help to support their claim or thesis for the essential question. (If you want to learn more about creating your own essential questions and how to do it, ----> click here.)

And this resource helped us do just that! 

How to teach students to use the text to provide evidence to support their claims. A great argumentative writing idea!

We also recently created this resource in a DIGITAL version, so you can use it over and over again in your paperless classroom!



Please let me know if you use it in your classroom and if your students find it helpful!

Thanks again for stopping by for all things Middle School :)



*I taught at a private school and apparently we just kind of do whatever we want ;) In all seriousness though, we did have yearly and quarterly tests our students took as benchmarks to help us direct our instruction, but nothing that weighed as heavily on our shoulders as I see currently for all of my public school teacher friends :/
