WRITE BEYOND THE TEXT
SESSION 4 | Grades 3-12 / ELL Levels 3-5
Raise the rigor from short to long reading responses
Transition from summarizing to inferring to synthesizing
Restate what was learned about a topic from several sources (e.g., encyclopedia, traditional report).
Make multiple inferences from a single source (e.g., literary analysis, argumentative analysis, evaluation).
Students cannot write an extended response based on a synthesis until they can write a constructed response from an inference.
