DIRECTIONS: Write your answers in paragraph form. Your first sentence should restate the question and give the correct answer. Do not simply rewrite the question and the answer letter. Then you cite proof from the text: either a direct quote in quotation marks or a paraphrase of what the article says. If you paraphrase you must tell where in the article you found it. For example, “The evidence to prove this answer is found in paragraph 9 where it says …….”. Finally, you must EXPLAIN just how the proof backs up the answer. Your paragraph should use adequate transition words to enable your reasoning to flow logically.
