Product Description
Differentiated Short Response/ Exit Slips for Literature contains 27 different standards-based short tasks for students designed in 81 convenient half-sheets that can be used with any literature! Each topic is differentiated (3 separate slips per topic) to accommodate 3 levels of learners: struggling, average/grade-level, and advanced.

The Response Slips can be used for short assessment with any literature activity (whole class, literature circles, guided reading groups, etc.) or as exit slips or homework.

The Differentiated Response Slips are a convenient way to have students practice Common Core skills whenever you can “slip” them into your instruction! Along with fiction and drama, they work well with narrative non-fiction, including biography and autobiography, some will work for poetry, and a few of these will also work for Informational Text (check the topics list below).

Teachers who have used this resource say
- "Love, love, love this resource! Makes differentiation a snap! Thanks!"
- "Really enjoy using these and the different skills you have incorporated!"
- "Very adaptable for any piece of text. We love the leveling of responses for our co-taught classes."
- "This is perfect for all levels of students!"
- "I really love these slips because I can meet the needs of so many students."

Level 1 tasks are written using more simplified language, are broken down into segments, and may not go into as much depth as levels 2 and 3. Level 2 tasks are written with language, format and required content geared for the average/grade-level learner. Level 3 tasks use higher-level language, a more challenging format, and go into more depth than levels 1 and 2. You will be able to discreetly tell which levels you are handing out by a text code in the heading (lower case, capitals, or bold italics) explained in the Preview.

If you are asked how you are differentiating (as many of us are), you can pull out these Common Core Short Assessments and show a relevant differentiation tool that can be used in a variety of ways to keep all learners engaged.

Please open the PREVIEW to see what these Differentiated Short Response Slips have to offer!
