Use these engaging higher order thinking reading comprehension task cards that provide your students a rigorous and FUN way to respond to reading with HOT skills. Students need to apply critical thinking skills to be able to answer how a Plot Twist will impact the plot, characters, theme, or overall story they are reading. These cards can be used as task cards or as Interactive Notebook response cards. Each card will work for any fiction book your student is reading.
♦ Included Materials:
36 Unique HOT Task Cards
36 Example Answer Cards
Student Self-Tracking Sheet
Teacher Class Tracking Sheet
To use as Task Cards,
print (color or black and white), cut, and laminate. Students can respond on the provided sheet or on their own paper. You can print the example response on the back of the task cards, create a set of example cards for students to access when needed, or not use them at all.
To use as Interactive Notebook response cards,
print in black and white for each student to glue into the INB next to their response, or provide a class set and have students label their answer with the card number. The example cards should not be printed on the back if you choose to have students glue the cards into INBs. With 36 cards, you can use these as a weekly reading response prompt and they will last the entire school year!
♦ Also included is a tracking sheet for students to use, so they only answer each question once per book, and a tracking sheet for your use. I find it helpful to see if students are gravitating towards a limited set of responses. You can also assign a certain response each week and use the form to track those who did not complete the task.
