You will receive 3 text-based questions requiring students to use evidence from the text to support their reasoning. Each question focuses on various concepts required for intensive literary analysis, based on the Common Core Standards, and DOK levels 3 and 4.
These questions have been designed to challenge students and get them to think deeply about the text and utilize higher-order thinking skills to develop their claims.
I used each question set as an in-class, timed writing assignment for my on-level and honors students. You can also use the questions as a homework assignment, or as a formative assessment for independent reading.
Also included, is a note-taking template, which students can use for independent reading, and to prepare for answering the critical thinking questions in class.
