Product Description
Need a flexible way to assess a fictional text? Want to try task cards, stations, and small group collaboration? (Want something OTHER than a quiz to assess understanding?)

Try this set of task cards to put some variety in your assessment of literary elements and texts! Ready to go for any whole-class novel, independent reading book, short story, or lit circles, this activity allows for both student choice and teacher preference for how the class period will go.

How it Works:
• Use these as individual work, small groups, and/or in stations!
• Students learn up to 35 literary terms and respond to cards in up to nine categories: Summary, Characters, Conflict, Narrator/POV, Literary Devices, Theme, Symbolism, Connections, and Opinions
• Using the student handout as a “base”, students answer one required question and then choose one of the three optional questions to answer as well.
• Assembly is quick – pick the pages you want, cut out cards, and tape cards to the base handout to make simple flaps
• Easy to grade, with a clear rubric and multiple spaces for formative teacher comments

This 18-page download includes:
• PDF and Editable versions
• Teacher Directions
• Student handout with clear instructions
• 36 task cards in nine categories
• Optional: Vocabulary Frontloading/Glossary Activity
• Optional: Self-Assessment and Review page

After this activity, students will be ready for the rest of your unit (and whatever assessments, activities, or next literary text will follow!)
