This 1-page outline is intended to help guide students through a piece of literature 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!

Common Core Standard(s): Cite textual evidence that supports your analysis of a text (RL8.1); determine a theme or central idea & its relationship to characters, setting, and the plot; provide a summary of the text (RL8.2); analyze how dialogue or incidents propel action, reveal aspects of a character, or provoke a decision (RL8.3); analyze how differences in point of view create such effects as suspense or humor (RL8.6)
