Shift 4: Text-based Answers

Students have rich and rigorous conversations which are dependent on students reading a central text. Teachers ensure classroom experiences stay deeply connected to the text and that students develop habits for making evidentiary arguments based on the text, both in conversation as well as in writing, to assess their comprehension of a text (Appendix A, p. 2).
