"Where do I find text dependent questions for my reading series or for an assigned book?" The Common Core State Standards for reading strongly focus on students gathering evidence, knowledge, and insight from what they read. Eighty to ninety percent of the Reading Standards in each grade require text dependent analysis; accordingly, aligned curriculum materials should have a similar percentage of text dependent questions.
In this segment "Common Sense and the Common Core" has gathered resources for you and your colleagues to not only create text dependent questions but assist in training your students to craft their own text dependent questions from their reading. Students will share, discuss, and write with the added benefit of staying focused on their text and bringing greater comprehension.
