LOCATING and CITING EVIDENCE

Help your struggling readers find the information they're looking for in their nonfiction reading.

One year I offered my fourth graders the opportunity to take their nonfiction quizzes "open book." I was surprised to discover this didn't help them at all.  So, I sat beside them as they took the quizzes - and discovered my strugglers had no idea how to look for the evidence they sought. They simply guessed, then felt bad if they couldn't remember the answers. That's when I began to explicitly teach them the skills they needed to locate evidence.
