Product Description
FULLY EDITABLE - 90 Task Cards – all aligned with the Common Core Reading Standards.

The task cards are:
* organized by standards
* aligned with the benchmarks for the current grade AND all previous grades to offer more of a complete picture of what students should be able to apply to texts
* text-based
* require close reading/re-reading
* meant to be used with short texts or short excerpts of longer texts for deeper engagement

I also included a unique feature: Each task card has a graphic organizer or some way for students to record their answers in their notebooks. See the preview file or sample images for examples.

I always struggle with writing challenging and thought-provoking reading discussion questions. With the task cards, it’s easy to mix and match them according to the text at hand… and to make every question standards-based.

The set of task cards for LITERATURE includes such skills as:
* Discovering the theme
* Exploring the author's use of language (denotation, connotation, figurative language, sound devices, symbols, allusions, and more)
* Exploring connections between story elements, such as plot-character, setting-theme, and character-conflict
* Examining point of view and purpose
* Comparing a text with an artistic version of it
... and much more.

This set of task cards for INFORMATIONAL TEXT includes such skills as:
* Backing claims about the text using direct & inferential evidence
* Discovering the central idea
* Examining the text structure of an entire text and a specific paragraph
* Analyzing arguments
... and much more.

Please note: Task cards for each grade build on those from previous grades. As a general rule, if you teach multiple grades, the set of task cards for the higher grade level should be sufficient. For example, the 9th/10th grade set would be too difficult for 7th graders, but the 8th grade set should be fine.

Please purchase task cards for multiple grade levels at your discretion. In each case, I have included a preview file that provides a table of contents.
