When you first come across a piece of literature, your main goal is to try to grasp the goal of the author or the story. Once we identify the main theme, our task is to use our research skills to dive into the work and find hard facts that support the theme. Locating evidence is a tremendously important task. If you are really good at this skill as you enter the workforce you are certain to be rewarded and never have to look for work. The work always finds good researchers. This selection of worksheets is for our younger students that are just begin to understand the research process. When we are trying to form an argument we will often work off of evidence in a body of work we are reading. The key to forming competent arguments is to have a solid list of supporting points. You can often find these bullet points by looking at the structure of the sentence itself. Sentences that desperately try to assert something are often the key points of the work. These worksheets will help you identify those key and supporting points of any work.
