Additional Resources

Text-Dependent Question (TDQ) Bank – This TDQ bank includes multiple question frames organized by reading-literature and reading-informational text standard. Some standards do not have examples since it’s completely dependent on the texts being used as to what the question could be (e.g., standards asking students to compare texts).

2nd Grade – Standards at a Glance – This document contains the ELA standards for 2nd grade only.

Standards-Alignment Guide – This resource may be used for 3 primary functions: 1) the determination of standards to align to various texts by having the user ask him/herself a series of questions; 2) the creation of text-dependent questions through sample question frames; and 3) the identification of clear learning objectives tied to specific reading standards. The sample questions and deconstructed tasks found within the document in the second and third columns respectively were modified from work produced by the Delaware Department of Education.

Sample Reading Tasks – CCSS Appendix B Excerpts – In order to best connect reading to writing, the K-2 reading performance tasks described in Appendix B of the CCSS document was excerpted and organized by grade-level in order to help provide teachers with examples of reading tasks that could be turned into writing tasks.

Central Message – Graphic Organizer Version 1 – This graphic organizer is used to identify a central message, collect evidence, and then analyze how the evidence connects to the identified central message. There is a checklist of things to consider when identifying a central massage (the difference between graphic organizers).

Central Message – Graphic Organizer Version 2 – This graphic organizer is used to identify a central message, collect evidence, and then analyze how the evidence connects to the identified central message.

Three Little Pigs – script – This anonymous version of The Three Little Pigs was used as the text for sample evidence and the evidence sort activity as presented during pre-service.
