This 1-page outline is intended to help guide students through a piece of informational text as they read. I have created questions that embed 8th grade Common Core standards with GATE ICONS to produce a comprehensive resource that can be adapted for other grades and subjects.
I use these with my Language Arts kiddos every Wednesday. I generally spend Monday on spelling and grammar; Tuesday on vocabulary, context clues, and pre-reading activities; Wednesday reading, annotating, and responding to text using THESE :); Thursday writing; and Friday assessing. Hope you will find some good use from these too. Enjoy!
