Identifying Evidence

Examining evidence is a large part of reading and writing rhetorically. Before students can effectively analyze and evaluate an author's evidence, they must be able to identify what type of evidence is used and where it appears in a text. Students will need to develop this skill before they move on to analyzing and evaluating the evidence.

Literacy Standards In Action

We've mapped our literacy lessons and reading, speaking, and writing skills to state standards, Common Core, and NGSS. The standards are "the what" to teach. Our lessons are "the how" to meet the expectations defined by the standards. Click on the links below to view our quick reference table that maps standards to literacy lessons.

R1
Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it; and cite specific evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text.
R8
Delineate and evaluate the argument and specific claims in a text, including the validity of the reasoning as well as the relevance and sufficiency of the evidence.
SL3
Evaluate a speaker’s point of view, reasoning, and use of evidence and rhetoric.
