I made these task cards to use as a "student-led" discussion center during my guided reading block. I have had a hard time making guided reading work in the upper grades without being a glorified silent reading time where students just answer questions and meet with the teacher every so often. So.. in an effort to shake up the monotony of my current guided reading time, these task cards emerged.
I used a collection of reader response questions I've found various places over the years. I chose questions my students have found thought provoking in the past and could answer in a group together.
You could also use these to guide your guided reading "after" discussions, since they apply to any book, or as a center.
