"Instant Data As we went over each question, I had students color in the square if they had that question wrong. Once we were done with the test, I took each strip and taped them to a manilla folder. INSTANT data!!! I did not have to plug numbers into a computer. I can clearly see that question 9 is one I really need to go over."

Teaching students to write long reading response off of sticky note ...maybe use sticky as the main idea sentence and they give details or supporting details from that...

The students read the passage independently, then travel around the classroom answering the questions on butcher paper. There can be 3-4 stations with each station asking a question about a story element (i.e. one on characters, one on setting etc). Each stations has enough squares for each student in the class to write their answer. The question can be posted on the butcher paper, or on the wall. Students must support their answer with evidence from the story.
