Common Core requires that students understand complex text independently. Now here is a quick and easy way for students to practice that really uses thinking skills! It is perfect for reading, writing, history/social studies, science, music, and character education all in one! It could easily be adapted to various grade levels depending upon how you use it.
My Quick Quotations sets are sold individually, but now you can purchase all of them and SAVE when buying them in this bundle!

Quick Quotations pages works well independently or in partners/small groups.They would also be great in an independent writing center or as a bell-ringer activity.
Students analyze a quotation (or more than one) of a great thinker from history, science, music, etc. EIGHT different quotation sheets for each person are included. This means you get a total of 120 quotation sheets in the bundle in total!
Students then respond to the quotation (following your guidelines).
There are so many ways to do this, and I have purposely not provided directions on the sheets so that students can follow the example YOU set for them and include what YOU would like them to include.
A suggested sequence might be:
1. Read the quotation provided.
2. Think about the quotation. This can be done alone or with a partner in discussion. What does the quotation mean? Do you agree or disagree? Why or why not? Is the quotation important? Why or why not? Provide students with any questions you would like them to address in their thinking and/or discussion.
3. Write about the quotation. Students will now formulate their thoughts or discussion points into a piece of writing about the quotation.
4. You might then have students share their written responses aloud with the class.
Students could all work on the same quotation or you might provide different students with different quotations.
