Description

Teaching students how to analyze and evaluate informational texts is important, but coming up with the right questions can be tricky. These 18 Informational / Nonfiction Text Reading Task Cards for your middle school or high school students do that work for you, and they can be used in a variety of ways in your classroom! Here are some suggestions for how you can use these task cards as reading responses, reading activities, or reading assignments:

- Have students respond to task cards in partners
- Assign one question to a table or group of students
- Assign students to pick a card at random at the end of an article or text
- Use them to hold students accountable for informational texts they read independently
- Have students write book assignments for various subjects
- Assign small groups a question and have them their present their responses to the class
- Have early finishers grab a random task card to respond to
- Assign a card as extra credit

**SAVE OVER 20% BY PURCHASING THESE TASK CARDS IN OUR TASK CARDS BUNDLE. INCLUDES 18 INFORMATIONAL TEXT TASK CARDS, 28 READING RESPONSE TASK CARDS, AND 12 CRITICAL THINKING TASK CARDS.**

We have included 18 Informational Text Task Cards in this resource. All questions can be utilized with essentially any unit of study. Additionally, we have provided you with a rubric (you can select the point value of each item in the rubric) and evidence-based phrases to help students answer the prompts if you want them to write their responses.

*The duration of this activity completely depends on how you choose to use it in your classroom. This could be useful for anywhere from one unit of study all the way up to an entire year's worth of activities.*

PLEASE NOTE: SOME OF THESE QUESTIONS ARE THE SAME QUESTIONS AS OUR INFORMATIONAL TEXT READING RESPONSE QUILT. WE HAVE SIMPLY CREATED TASK CARDS USING THOSE QUESTIONS AND SOME EXTRA QUESTIONS. HOWEVER, BOTH RESOURCES CAN BE UTILIZED IN YOUR CLASSROOM IN DIFFERENT WAYS!
