This digital one pager is intended to be used with informational texts, and the prompts included are aligned to Common Core Reading Informational Text standards. It is intended for use with middle school and high school students. Students can use it with any informational text!


Students can respond to topics outside of those included on the choice board. Some of the included informational text analysis elements are...

  • key ideas or main ideas
  • supporting details
  • inferences
  • objective summaries
  • connections and distinctions
  • text structure
  • word choice
  • tone
  • appeal to emotions
  • credibility
  • logic
  • author's purpose
  • point of view
  • bias
  • mode / genre
  • evaluate
  • essential question

Is it editable?

  • Rubric: The rubric in this resource is editable
  • Choice Menus: The choice menus are partially editable in that you can change the descriptors in each box, but not the headings themselves. One slide is included at the end that has fully editable text options.
  • Creation Templates: These components are secure to honor font and graphics designers' terms of use. You can, however, add additional slides in Google Slides and create new content to fit seamlessly into the assignment. Students also have the option of creating from a blank slide.

NOTE: The templates do not already have text boxes in place. One pagers can be abstract, and students need flexibility to insert text where they would like, adjusting angles and sizes as necessary. One of the built-in simple tech skills students will utilize while competing this assignment is adding their own text boxes, should they choose to use the templates in Google Slides.
