This is a wonderful tool that works with any type of informational or non-fiction text. This resource is Common Core aligned and was created for upper grades. Students are scaffolded through this response sheet and complete a text feature scavenger hunt, identify the author's purpose...etc and more! I plan to use this response sheet with brochures that the student's pick. I love using brochures in my classroom I think they are a fun and FREE way to diversify informational texts in the classroom. Let me know how you plan to use the response sheet! I love your feedback!
