My students have been completing Daily Common Core ELA practice. It is like a DOL and other types of morning practice. The biggest difference is it contains really short Common Core aligned passages and questions for quick daily review. No matter what resource you use, discussing the correct answers and the errors that students make can be so valuable. It can really boost student understanding of concepts.
This was one question that a few of my students got incorrect and is a common type of error students in general make. I call it a dense text question. This one paragraph has many details and information packed into it (on purpose). Students that read carefully and went back to the text to locate their answer did well. Even students that did not do this at first, began to improve later when this type of error was brought to their attention.
Sometimes students only have partial knowledge of a concept. Analyzing reading comprehension errors can really help distinguish students that fully understand a concept from those that don't. Having students think about their thinking and how they determine their answers can really improve comprehension.
