Claim Support Question
Connections and Extension

Combine Claim Support Question with other routines, such as the Tug for Truth and Hot Spots routine, when students need to elaborate on a truth claim or give evidence for claim. Experiment with different ways to use the routine - individually, in small groups or in whole class discussions.

Encourage students to practice making claims and giving evidence or support, for these claims. Students might try to identify other times when they can use the Claim/ Support/ Question strategy. Would this strategy be helpful at other times, either in school or in their lives outside of school? Ask students to brainstorm a list and keep it posted in the classroom for future reference.
