Reflection: ELL Students How Many Letters Does Your Name Have? - Section 2: Interact with the text/concept


Text dependent questions are a very big piece of the Common Core.  It is the common thread throughout the grade levels that students will continue to see all the way through 12th grade.  We begin with basic questions that can be answered, usually, with picture support or by bouncing right back to the text.  

At this time of the year, students can sometimes pick out the answers that are 'right there' in the text, but I often have to reread a portion of the text using the "Everybody Listen For" strategy.  Sometimes that means just reading the sentence the answer is in, but that is ok.  Students are building the understanding that we gain information from the text.
