Strengthen text citations in 3 steps
Students know that they must include text evidence to support their inferences, and many are familiar with common sentence starters like, “According to the passage…” or “The author states…” And yet many still struggle to write.
Support students by showing them how to craft these sentences. Teach them how to take a sentence starter and how to merge it with key words from the original text. This process requires 3 individual steps.
