Product Description
Use these task cards to give your students practice with identifying introduction components like hook, "arch" (transition), and thesis as well as relevant and irrelevant evidence and commentary!

Students read the two texts and then use these cards to practice with the vocabulary. You can do this in many ways, but my two favorites are playing Scoot and Scatter. (Directions for both are included).

Included in this resource:
★ 2 rigorous texts about Pipestone National Monument and Mount Rushmore
★ 20 task cards
★ 1 poster with text-based essay vocabulary terms
★ directions to play Scoot and Scatter with the cards
★ answer sheets
★ answer key

I used this in my own 6th grade class in conjunction with reading Walk Two Moons.

Want to use this with your team or PLC? That's great! Additional licenses are 10% off! Just visit your "My Purchases" page to purchase them!

If your students need more of a foundation before they begin to practice, try this:
