COMMON CORE TEXT DEPENDENT PROMPT SHEETS
You NO LONGER have to spend time trying to think of CCSS-worthy questions/ prompts!!!!
The CCSS require teachers and students to dive deeper into the text than ever before. Surface level comprehension questions are no longer going to get students at the level of rigor that they need to demonstrate to meet the CCSS requirements for deeper understanding of text.
These prompt sheets are simple, well-organized, and very user friendly. There are two pages for literary text standards (RL.7.1-9), and informational text standards (RI.7.1-9). There is also 2 pages of sample prompts for writing in history, social studies, science, and technical texts. A tried and true time saver!!!!
Print the sheets in color, and front to back. It also helps to laminate the pages, because you will use these daily! You will want to have a copy in your lesson planning book, at your guided reading table, during whole group discussions.....
**Hit as many standards as you can in close reading discussions, guided reading discussions, novel studies...just keep this sheet at your fingertips! Your new best friend!
**Making tests, quizzes, discussion starters, writing prompts (Be wary of what you may be using now for response questions- they may not be CCSS quality!)
**Give students a copy of the sheets to put into their reader's notebooks- they can also create tests for each there, as well as use these sheets in literature discussions.
***I developed these prompt sheets because I saw that no discussion guide or internet worksheet hit as many CCSS as possible at the level of rigor required- I keep these sheets handy ALL THE TIME!!
