Any Subject, Any Source, Anywhere!!!!!! As Common Core hits us it is even more important for students to be able to anaylze reading sources: articles, textbooks, novels, website etc....
It guides students to think about the cause, effects and infer what might come next. It organizes this thought process in a 3 paragraph response. It works for any middle or high school grade for any reading material that you have given them.
This is a great printable that will work for ANY source. Newspapers, Magazines novel, Science, Social Studies, Physical Education, Art it doesn't matter. This will force students to think and perform at a higher level in their written responses by making them identify a cause and effects and providing contextual evidence in their three paragraph response.
I like to keep copies of this, personal reflection response sheets and read and respond sheets handy. When students are finished with work early in my Social Studies class they are required to grab a newspaper, read an article and complete one of the response sheets. My partner that teaches reading requires them to fill out a response sheet as proof they read out of a book of their choice for homework. It allows the student to pick any book they want to read for homework, but asks them to complete the same task.
This purchase is in PDF format and includes a printable that guides students to respond to reading material of any kind that you have given them to read.
