Close read what? Text dependent huh?
The Common Core can be overwhelming, but it doesn't have to be! If you are new to close reading or asking Text Dependent Questions, these cards will help you along.
This set includes 25 Text Dependent Questions on cards that you can print out to have handy in your class, or to assist you when planning. There are also 18 student Think/ Talk stems, to get students familiar with using evidence to answer questions and back their claims. Stems can be used for fiction and nonfiction texts, and across many grade levels.
Please contact me with any questions/ comments/ suggestions. I will be adding to these stems as I learn more, and would love to hear your input!
