LC: To justify responses to a text using point and evidence.

Here is part of a playscript.

Why did the woodcutter lay awake worrying?

Point: He must have been worried about his family starving. 

A point is your opinion based on what you have read. 

 

Evidence: 'There was scarcely any food' and 'there had been a great famine' which means there was little food for him and his family. 

Evidence from the text is the clue or clues that make you have a certain opinion. 

 

 

He must have been worried about his family starving because there was scarcely any food and there had been a great famine.

 

Your Task

1. Re-read the Pied Piper of Hamelin playscript and then answer the questions.

                       

2. Re-read the Hansel and Gretel playscript and then answer the questions.

 

All answers need a point with correct evidence.

Use the model above to help you.
