Anyone have any lessons they use to teach citing textual evidence and inferences? Would love to have any activities that you might use also!!

We work on citing text evidence and inferencing throughout the year. SCOPE Scholastic Magazine is a fantastic resource which supplies online activity sheets to supplement the articles. Another idea, photo copy an article, pose questions and have students highlight the evidence to support the answer. You can take it a step further by having them explain why or how it supports the answer. Be sure to include inferencing questions too. Otherwise, teacher pay teacher or the teaching channel offer great lessons.

I have them do it throughout the year, as well. Readworks.org is a great site for passages and questions. Unfortunately, there are still those students that are just too lazy to do it!

I agree about those who are too lazy to do it. I have about 5 of those students who no matter how hard I work with them they do not get any better at the task!

My favorite is the graphic organizer which has the "it says..." (evidence) plus "I say..." (background knowledge) to infer answers "and so...".

"What does the text say?"

I have a worksheet that I got from Teachers by Teachers/Pinterest, called "What Does the Text Say?" (like the song, What does the Fox Say?) I've done variations were we make our claim (and I tell them that's what we say" and then find evidence of "what the text says" to prove it. They seem to like this and when we're working in groups they sing the line "What does the text say?" to each other to make sure they always give evidence.

There is a DIFFERENCE between being lazy and not getting better at a task. You said they were not getting any better at the task. That does not mean they are lazy. Some students really struggle.

But if I thought these students had other issues besides apathy and laziness, I would not have agreed with the previous post. Unfortunately, I have to say that is their problem. I have been teaching for 13 years and have never seen any student like these few. I am in 6th grade (elementary) now and I know these students' age has something to do with it but I also blame their outside influences.
