Rationale for using Discussion Cards:

Discussions are guided by students’ responses to what they have read. This approach provides a way for students to engage in critical thinking and reflection as they read, discuss, and respond to books. Collaboration is at the heart of this approach. Students reshape and add to their understanding as they construct meaning with other readers. The Discussion Cards have questions from each chapter prompting students to cite evidence from the text and take their thinking to a deeper level.

Perfect for:

  • Literature Circles
  • Book Clubs
  • Guided Reading
  • Comprehension Check
  • Speaking and Listening Skills
  • Formative Assessment
  • Distance Learning

Quick Set Up!

  • Laminate pages, cut out and staple at the top or insert ring binder
  • Perfect size to fit inside library pocket inside front cover of book
  • or Share on Google Classroom


What I love most about using the cards with my students: I love so many things about them but I especially love how they get all serious about their discussions when they have the little clipboard questions. It makes them feel official, like the little scholars they are.
