There are a total of 24 expository task cards. Each card has a short excerpt from an expository text. The cards include topics like obesity, teen jobs, exercise, space, bullying, violence, technology and many more. Each of the cards has a STAAR-like question. The questions are designed to look like questions students may see on the STAAR test. The questions that are asked have been created using STAAR stems and modeled from the released STAAR passages.
There are so many uses for this product. You can use them as a warm up or as an exit ticket. You can use them in literacy stations, gallery walks, or even work for early finishers. Every time I use them in a different way. These cards are so versatile.
This product was designed for middle school classrooms.
