Here is a great lesson from one of my TPT colleagues!
CCRA.A.1: Focusing In: Close Reading & Annotating -Reading Skills Lesson Pack: The objective of this teaching pack is to foster students' beginning or basic understanding of how to close read and annotate a text.
L.6.4a, L.7.4a, L.8.4a, CCRA.L.4 Common Core exit slips for the skill of context clues . CCRA.L.4, L.9-10.4a Common Core Test Prep Exit Slips - CONTEXT CLUES - Grades 9-10 They use rigorous grade-level appropriate texts, many of which are on the text exemplar list, and are aligned to the PARCC test. Even if states aren't using PARCC, they are aligned to a new generation of tests, because students have to choose the inferred meaning and then select a piece of evidence to support it.
