Lesson 18: Use textual evidence to support a claim

Students reread "Letters of Wilbur Wright" by Wilbur Wright and respond to text-dependent questions. Students also discuss reasons to support a claim and find evidence to prove each reason. This lesson prepares students for part 2 of the extension task because students write a speech that has a claim, reasons, and evidence.
