8th Grade Common Core Student Response Pages for Literature contains thirteen pages of attractively-designed student-ready handouts that will have your students practicing the Common Core Reading Standards with any literature you choose to teach.
Each response page starts with an explanation of the concept the Common Core Standard reflects in language the student can understand. Next, a section begins with the words “Your job is to . . .” followed by a short bulleted list explaining to the student what tasks will need to be done related to the text you are using. Then the practice work related specifically to the standard follows, in various inviting formats such as bulleted lists, boxed sections, columns with headings, and lined areas with borders.
The Common Core Standards and Response Page Titles represented in this product are as follows:
RL8.1 Analyzing a Text
RL8.2 Development of Theme
RL8.2 Writing an Objective Summary
RL8.3 Dialogue and Action
RL8.4 Figurative Language and Meaning
RL8.4 Connotative Meanings and Author’s Tone
RL8.5 Text Structure
RL8.6 Character vs. Reader – Differences in Point of View
RL8.7 Compare & Contrast: Text to Film or Performance
RL8.9 Modern Writers Use Stories of the Past!
You will enjoy using these response pages because they come with very clear instructions for the students, can be inserted wherever you see fit into units you already have, can be used more than once with different text, and are definite evidence that you are implementing the Common Core Reading Standards.
