When students are asked to justify their thoughts and ascertains with evidence many times they confuse this with just using basic details from the text they are engulfed with. In any body of work there often many different stated details, but very few pieces of evidence. The best thing to do when searching for evidence in a text is to circle all facts that are completely indisputable. Once the facts are clearly identified, you have your selection of evidence to choose from. These worksheets will help you begin to understand the difference between a detail and fact.
