This reading comprehension lesson focuses on drawing conclusions from a text. The lesson includes research-based strategies and strategic questions that prepare students for assessments. In this lesson, students read the question identifying the topic. Then, they underline evidence in the text that may lead to a conclusion about the topic. Finally, they choose one of four conclusions and then justify it. In addition to the lesson, there are four pages of Independent Practice and review with questions modeled after current adaptive testing items.
