I have used these Common Core (CCSS) aligned discussion and constructed response questions for Hoot by Carl Hiaasen successfully for several years with fifth graders.
I decided to make cards for a couple of reasons:
1. I made them to save paper. Once you print and laminate these, you can use them for many years in either a literacy center or in small group instruction.
2. I wanted to make them aesthetically more appealing and colorful.
The set contains 24 discussion questions and 6 constructed response questions. I have also included a R.A.C.E.S. chart to remind students to use R.A.C.E.S. when answering constructed response questions.
Although I am and have been a fifth grade teacher for many years, I think these questions could work well with 6th, 7th, and possibly 8th graders.
