Making Evidence-Based Claims ELA/Literacy Units empower students with a critical reading and writing skill at the heart of the Common Core: making evidence-based claims about complex texts. These units are part of the Developing Core Proficiencies Curriculum.
This unit develops students’ abilities to make evidence-based claims through activities based on a close reading of three texts: Ain’t I a Woman?, by Sojourner Truth; Equal Rights for Women, by Shirley Chisholm; and Wimbledon Has Sent Me a Message: I’m Only a Second-Class Champion, by Venus Williams.
The unit components are divided into separate PDF files for ease of use. The files may be downloaded individually or in a single zip file.
