These 20 task cards are perfect for the SBAC (Smarter Balanced Assessment) or standardized test prep. They use excerpts from popular youth novels to help engage your students as they practice finding the author's purpose in a variety of questions.
The cards contain a short excerpt and use multiple choice, A/B questions (evidence-based selected response), multi-select, and short answer questions.
They are great for small groups, literacy centers, stations, partner work, intervention groups, and much more. You could also use one card at a time with your whole class as a warm-up, mini-lesson, or exit ticket. An answer key is included as well as an author's purpose poster and student recording sheet.
