BCR responses need to include: an answer to the question, text support and an inference.

BCR responses are required to be written in a specific boxed area.

When responding to a BCR think about: Can my teacher tell I read the passage? Did I answer the question? Did I include text support? Did I make a relevant inference or extension?

1) Can my teacher tell that I read the passage? 2) Did I answer the question? 3) Did I support my answer with information (details) from the text? 4) Did I make a relevant inference or interpretation when answering my question?
