This Step-by-Step Text Evidence unit is a complete, NO-Prep unit with a variety of activities to help students learn an effective approach to analyzing text and increasing reading comprehension. Through anchor charts, modeling, mentor text, differentiated interactive pages, practice, task cards, and differentiated informative reading passages, students will have a thorough understanding of how to provide text evidence. It now comes in PDF, POWERPOINT, AND GOOGLE.
SEE THE PREVIEW! Since some teachers or districts use the acronym RACE and others use ACE, I included separate files with the same instruction, but different acronyms for this foundation skill.
