Product Description

Make talking about literature FUN! These cards can be used to start a conversation about a piece of literature before or following a more analytical discussion of the piece. The prompts on these cards are not intended to substitute for a formal literary analysis of the text; rather, they are intended to supplement such discussions, and make talking about literature more enjoyable. The cards are meant to encourage students to think more creatively about what they have read, and should make conversation about literature less intimidating, especially for students who are reluctant to contribute to such discussions. The students will be making connections, analyzing the literary devices, thinking about the author's purpose, and focusing on the meaning of the text in a fun and creative way.

How to prepare the cards:
Print cards with or without the optional face. Use heavy card stock for durability.
Laminate the cards for longer use.
Print a class set, or print several sets of cards to distribute to small groups.

Perfect for whole class discussions, small group discussions, journal prompts, reader's notebooks, games, and many other activities.

Included in the download are both color and black and white versions of the card faces, 16 discussion prompts, and a set of instructions and ideas for use.
