Task cards are a helpful teaching tool that allow your students to think deeper not wider. I designed the set to focus on the skill of inferencing. Students will not simply recall information but apply the skill of inferencing. The task cards also mesh with the TEAM rubric for evaluation and incorporate all 4 of the thinking types. The cards work wonderfully during private think time, small reading group, whole group instruction. and centers time. Used in conjunction with my reading interactive notebook they become a powerful teaching tool.
