I created these reading responses to ensure that my students were exposed to higher level thinking. These sheets encourage children to find specific and inferred ideas within the text, to evaluate and synthesise information and make cross-curricular links. They work on them in small groups and meet with me weekly to go over answers and discuss the new ideas. The questions are designed to give the teacher an insight on "next steps" for their learners.
It takes approximately a term to complete the response work. All of the questions have page numbers with them so the students know where they need to look for answers.
