This is a set of 28 critical reading, or close reading, task cards for use in your MS or HS classroom with any article, essay, argument, speech, memoir, or other nonfiction text.
The cards are one-sided, and I would suggest cutting them out, pasting to cardstock or construction paper, and then laminating them if possible.
Here are the categories and number of cards I've included for each:
+ Pre-reading (4)
+ Active Reading (4)
+ Second Reading (4)
+ Main Idea (4)
+ Purpose/Audience (4)
+ Development/Structure (4)
+ Language (4)
Please see the preview for a sample of a few of these cards.
In addition, I have also included a graphic organizer that you can copy for students to respond to the cards' prompts.
I hope you find these useful in your classroom!
