A set of 28 task cards which require students to think critically and incorporate Common Core Expectations when answering questions about informational texts. These cards work with any text, of any length, but may require some pre-teaching or explanation based on the level of your students.
Prompts include critical thinking questions about the following reading skills:
Cause & Effect
Compare & Contrast
Fact & Opinion
Point of View
...Other critical thinking prompts
**These cards are meant to enrich and extend ordinary thinking about book, moving beyond basic, literal understanding, and branching out into inferential, critical thinking. These cards are perfect for small groups, guided instruction, or independent work.
