Task cards to help students practice and find success at close reading. Laminate cards and students can use dry erase markers to circle, underline, and annotate quotes from United States Historical Figures. Then students will paraphrase each quote on a recording sheet. This activity will help students be more successful close reading longer passages in the future. This can be used as a center, small group activity, or remediation.
This resources includes:
-Instructions for use
-20 close reading task cards. Each card features a quote from a different historical figure including Martin Luther King Jr, Abraham Lincoln, Eleanor Roosevelt, Orville Wright, and many others.
-Recording sheet for students to practice paraphrasing.
