Give students a specific purpose (mission) as they are reading literature. Fill in the blanks for students so that the purpose is specific to the text they are reading (great for struggling readers) or let advanced students write in their own!
These task cards are great for literacy stations/centers and independent practice that you want to be guided. The cards can be interchangably used with any fictional text.
Great for close readings aligned with the common core as students reread passages with different "missions" in mind.
