Product Description
Common Core requires that students understand complex text independently. Now here is a quick and easy way for students to practice that just takes a few minutes but really uses thinking skills! It is perfect for reading, writing, history/social studies, and character education all in one!

This activity works well independently or in partners/small groups.
It would also be great in an independent writing center or as a bell-ringer activity.

Students analyze a quotation (or more than one) of John F. Kennedy. EIGHT different quotation sheets are included. They 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.
