TDA Toolkit

Text Dependent Analysis prompts expect students to read complex text(s), either narrative or informational, and provide a critical response by drawing evidence from text(s) to “support analysis, reflection, and research” using effective communication skills to write an essay in response to a prompt. In their response, a student needs to make inferences about the author’s meaning, using both explicit and implicit evidence to support an overall analysis of the reading elements (literary and literary nonfiction) found within the text. This toolkit is designed to provide guidance and direction to teachers pertaining to the teaching, learning, and assessing of text dependent analysis.
