The purpose of this resource is to allow teachers to differentiate their instruction by assigning different short stories to different groups of students based on their skill level.
Each of the pages can be printed on coloured paper and laminated. Depending on your class size you may need to print more than one copy of each aspect.
The students choose a card and work in small groups to complete the activities. Once they are finished they can then move on to the next card.
The teacher is able to move among the groups and help each group by working with them at the level that they are at.
Once each group has finished each card, they will have gathered, processed and applied the information needed to complete a formative assessment, such as an essay, on the short story that they have studied.
