common core - six shifts, 5

back at it - shift #5 - 

writing from sources

this shift takes us to the text.  instead of journaling, children write about what they are reading.  they cite evidence from the text.  

also, students write from multiple sources on a single topic, and share their learning with an audience.  

using this, children generate their own informational texts.  

no surprise here.  
joy to you!
