PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

ELA Common Core Differentiated Short Response Slips for Literature contains 27 different standards-based short tasks for students designed in convenient half-sheets that can be used with any literature! In addition, each topic is differentiated (3 separate slips per topic) to accommodate 3 levels of learners: struggling, average/grade-level, and advanced.
The Response Slips can be used for short assessment with any literature activity (whole class, literature circles, guided reading groups, etc.) or as exit slips or homework.

RESPONSE SLIP TOPICS:
COMMON CORE RL STANDARDS – KEY IDEAS AND DETAILS
--Important Event
--Characters and Action
--Important Passage
--Making Inferences
--Words Provoke a Decision
--A Quotation Reveals . . .
--Sum It Up!
--Setting and Action
--Setting . . .Descriptive Details
--Plot . . .Rising Action!
--Characters Impact Others
--Characters Change
--Theme
--Conflict and Theme
--Character Traits and Dialogue
--Events and Action!
COMMON CORE RL STANDARDS – CRAFT AND STRUCTURE
--Figurative Language
--Figurative Language and Meaning
--New Words!
--Connotative Meaning
--Mood
--Sound Devices
--Author’s Tone
--Text “Structure”
--Narrative Point of View
--Character’s Point of View
--Contrasting Points of View

Differentiation:
Level 1 tasks are written using more simplified language, are broken down into segments, and may not go into as much depth as levels 2 and 3. Level 2 tasks are written with language, format and required content geared for the average/grade-level learner. Level 3 tasks use higher-level language, a more challenging format, and go into more depth than levels 1 and 2. You will be able to discreetly tell which levels you are handing out by a text code in the heading (lower case, capitals, or bold italics) explained in the Preview.

These Differentiated Response Slips are a convenient way to have students practice Common Core skills whenever you can “slip” them into your instruction! Along with fiction and drama, they work well with narrative non-fiction, including biography and autobiography, some will work for poetry, and a few of these will also work for Informational Text (check the topics list).

If you are asked how you are differentiating (as many of us are), you can pull out these Common Core Short Assessments and show a relevant differentiation tool that can be used in a variety of ways to keep all learners engaged.

Please download my PREVIEW PAGES to see what these Differentiated Short Response Slips have to offer!

Thank you! --Joy Sexton

Another great help for teaching common core! We have used this with several of our novels and short stories so far. Very adaptable for any piece of text. Used with 7th and 8th graders! We love the leveling of responses for our co-taught classes.

Hands down the BEST product I've purchased on TpT! I don't usually spend this much on one product, but I'm so glad that I did. It was worth every penny! I intend to use these as exit slips and I know they will be put to good use. I love that students will not be able to tell who is getting which skill level at a quick glance. Some of them do appear different, but they are few. I truly believe that these will be such a great tool for me! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I appreciate your positive comments. When I designed these, I really felt it would be beneficial to differentiate common core topics. All students cannot "go deep" right away, yet we have to focus on these topics with all of our students.

Hi! Do you plan on creating a set of Common Core Differentiated Short Response Slips for Informational Text? Thanks!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  June 27, 2013Joy Sexton answered:
Well, right now I'm very involved in creating some other products, so I hadn't planned on it. There are some topics in the response slips that can be used for informational text though, like connotative meanings, new words, author's points of view, main idea, summary...check through and you will be able to have a few on hand when doing the informational stuff. Thanks for your interest!
