This is an excellent modern and engaging activity to have students take ownership of their learning and dig deeper and closely read a text.
Get this in my Literature Resources, Build Your Own Book Club Bundle!
These are not cards that prompt students to write a story or recall basic information about a text. The specific questions on these cards correlate directly with not only CCSS anchor standards, but also with higher-level thinking analysis skills. There are so many ways to use task cards in your class, and my students respond well to the interaction.
32 cards are included along with 4 blank cards for you to adapt to your class! SEE THE PREVIEW FILE AND GET FREE TASK CARDS!

Classroom success stories from teachers who have tried this resource:
♥ "An awesome set! You can use these for so many novels. You can read through and organize by level or bunch together and allow your gifted students to challenge themselves!"
♥ "My 11th graders love these!!! It's hard to find secondary tools sometimes & these are perfect."
♥ "I bought this item in conjunction with the Informational text set of task cards and I'm looking forward to using the task cards with my "Fast Finishers" board as extra practice.These align perfectly with the CCSS and I'm sure it will give them some more practice if they did not pass the graduation test. Thanks!"
