Print Lesson


SWBAT use evidence from the text to answer questions relating to key ideas and details, craft and structure, and integration of knowledge and ideas.

Big Idea

We have completed our close read and are ready to assess the knowledge the students have gained from digging deep into the text.



45 minutes

We have dug deep the last few days into the text "My Brother Martin" by Christine King Farris. Now the kids get the opportunity to show what they have discovered.  I will allow them to use the book to find their answers.  The new end of level testing in Utah requires students to find evidence from the text to support their answers.  I am hoping that practicing this with our assessments will make students more comfortable with this form of testing.
