Text-Dependent Questions:

Text-Dependent Questions Questions in assessments and classroom discussion should require students to gather evidence from the text, including paired passages, and not rely on personal experiences. Give students the opportunity to argue their beliefs around complex texts. In “Casey at the Bat,” Casey strikes out. Describe a time when you failed at something.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Students will read and understand grade-level complex text independently and proficiently and express that understanding clearly through writing and speaking about text.

Text-Dependent Questions:

Text-Dependent Questions Questions that can only be answered with evidence from the text Can be literal but can also involve analysis, synthesis, evaluation Focus on specific words, sentences and/or paragraphs as well as larger ideas, themes or events

PowerPoint Presentation:

In “Casey at the Bat,” Casey strikes out. Describe a time when you failed at something. In “Letter from a Birmingham Jail,” Dr. King discusses nonviolent protest. Discuss, in writing, a time when you wanted to fight against something that you felt was unfair. What makes Casey’s experiences at bat humorous? What can you infer from King’s letter about the letter that he received? Text-Dependent Questions

Roles:

Roles What the Teacher Does… Facilitate evidence-based conversations about text Plan and conduct rich conversations Keep students in the text Identify questions that are text-dependent, worthwhile, and stimulate discussion Provide opportunities to read, reread, reference other texts, and to dig more deeply in order to answer questions What the Student Does… Find evidence to support their argument Form own judgments and become scholars Have deep, evidence-based conversations about text Engage with the author and his/her choices
