Task cards are hot! Incorporate them into your secondary English classroom with this beautifully designed set. Here's how it works:
Assign the reading for homework.
Print a couple of copies of each set of task cards. Laminate for best use!
Group your class for literature circles.
Allow each group to pick, at random, one card from each page: 1 discussion question and 1 task.
Give students time to generate answers for their questions. Have students submit their answers to a Google Form you have created beforehand.
Allow students access to the spreadsheet of answers, and ask them comment on other student answers.
Come together as a class for whole-class discussion.
Sit back and congratulate yourself on being a superstar teacher who promotes critical thinking, collaboration, complex communication.
