Have you ever asked your students to restate the question in their answer and their blank-face stare response indicates they have no idea what you're talking about!?
I made this resource specifically to help students understand what it means to "restate the question." These 18 task cards provide straightforward practice on how to simply begin a short answer response by putting the question in the answer.
This resource also includes a PQA poster (acronym for Put the Question in your Answer) as well as a recording sheet and answer guide.
The 18 mini-size task cards are for you to cut and laminate.
