Evidence-based Questioning

These are our anchor charts from an activity we did this morning working on ELA CCCS:)




  1. Hi,
    I am one of your groupies! I subscribe to your podcast which has helped me greatly as I begin my 2nd year as an elementary principal. (I started listening to each show again because they make even more sense after my 1st year.) I also subscribe to your blog which is a source of inspiration! I am using your lesson plan from your earlier post about teaching students to blog. Blogging connects seamlessly with the CCSS.

    In this post, what questions/conversations led your teachers to create criteria charts for text-dependent questions?
    Thank you for sharing and for the inspiration!

  2. Hey Emily! Sorry it has taken so long to get back to you. We have been going through Common Core training and analysis. We had a presenter go through this with us.
