This eleven page reading guide lends itself to cause and effect.
When scholars complete the following questions, the teacher can rephrase the sentences to show cause and effect. For example, Molly balanced pennies on her teeth and the effect was the children smiled. OR Cause: children smiled EFFECT: Ronald felt foolish
In addition to cause and effect questions, I ask more critical thinking and life application questions.
Encourage Scholars to go back in the text to cite evidence.
