What educators are saying

Students enjoy these task cards because the text is about sports. Thank you for creating this awesome resource.
My students loved this task cards activity ! It was a productive struggle in the beginning, but they understood it and were able to do it on their own. Thank you


A critical skill in comprehending nonfiction text is being able to identify an author's central argument, opinion, or point of view and evaluate the claims he or she makes. But first, most students benefit from practice simply identifying the author's main argument.

Engage your middle school students using digital task cards and give them practice identifying the author's argument with these 20 sports themed passages.
