The eight story discussion question cards promote higher order thinking in a very FUN way! These cards are influenced by Bloom's Taxonomy and are Common Core Aligned!! They can be used at the end any fiction story or book. Here are some ideas for use in your classroom:
* As discussion questions during guided reading or whole group instruction.
* Use as an assessment tool
* Students can answer these questions independently in their reading journal or reading ILN.
* In a work station or literacy station with cooperative learning.
