Suggestions below are simply an approach that works especially well for my students. Options for Getting More from 50 Task Cards – The Fault in Our Stars: Read 1 chapter at a time
and complete task cards that correspond to that chapter. Perhaps Group 1 – addresses tasks 1 – 3 on day 1; Group 2 – addresses tasks 4 - 8 on day 2; Group 3 – addresses tasks 9 – 13 on day 3; Group 4 – addresses tasks 14 – 18 on day 4; Group 5 – addresses tasks 19 – 23 on day 5; Group 6 – addresses tasks 24 – 28 on day 6; Group 7 – addresses tasks 29 – 33 on day 7; Group 8 – addresses tasks 34 – 38 on day 8; Group 9 – addresses tasks 39 – 43 on day 9; Group 10 – addresses tasks 44 – 48 on day 10.
Students are guided by task cards for all presentations
and they might engage the entire class in their assigned chapters. Each team might identify, define and share new words encountered – designing a collective bulletin board of interesting words.
Task cards are all listed in an index included for easy access
so they can be stored successfully. Some faculty prefer the no-prep-options these cards offer, so they are simply copied in easy worksheet formats. Other faculty favor laminating all 50 cards and filing them in a central station for future use. Students sign out task cards and then return them at the conclusion of their lessons, and before receiving grades for their work.
A poster is include to inspire student discussions
on 7 key themes of this novel. To save you time and effort – all task cards come with answer keys and active learning prompts.
