Research proves that student comprehension and understanding are increased when they respond to the text they've read. This printable prompting guide is a simple, powerful way to allow students to independently think about the text.
Talking About Text, A Printable Prompting Guide, is a set of eight reproducible worksheets that can be used during Reader’s Workshop, Book Clubs, Read Alouds, or any other reading groups used in your classroom.
Talking About Text printables allow the students to respond to literature independently. These questions are designed to prompt the students to think deeply about the story and respond using evidence from the text. Discussion questions focus on the following elements of literature:
Each page of the eight reproducible worksheets features two days worth of reader’s responses – sixteen days total! Each day’s response section begins with a response number and date, allowing you to tailor the packet to fit the timeline of your reader’s workshop – packets can be shortened by simply omitting a page or two.
Each of the sixteen response sections provide students with four possible thought-provoking questions to respond to. Discussion questions are listed according to the natural progression of a story: exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, and resolution and cover four of the five story elements listed above. Lines are provided below each set of discussion questions for the students to write their response.
Reproducible pages are designed to be copied back-to-back and stapled together to form an individual student packet.
