You have two options for differentiating your teaching!
Option #1: The first set of cards include 16 half-page cards which include three separate paragraphs about one general topic. Each paragraph was written with a different text structure in mind. Each card also includes 3 additional comprehension or text structure questions that require students to use the information from the paragraphs to answer them.
Option #2: The second option is the individual task cards, 48 in total, which include the **SAME** paragraphs from the half page cards, but there are no questions, and only one paragraph per card. The options are endless for how you want to use these cards!
