Self-Guided Non-Fiction Reading Responses

$5.00

The included cards provide questions that encourage critical reading of non-fiction works, with question list variations offered to emphasize keywords.

Description

Critical literacy begins in being able to decode a text and then analyze it for meaning, implicit and explicit themes, and the relationship of a text to a given perspective, author’s purpose, and related text and media.

Promote close, critical reading of text with these self-guided writing prompts. While you can assign specific prompts to students, giving students the choice in choosing the appropriate prompt based on their reading can also function as an informal kind of assessment (the relevance of the prompt they choose, for example).

But more importantly, it gives students choice in their learning, which can improve engagement while functioning as a tool for differentiation. The included cards provide questions that encourage critical reading of non-fiction works, with question list variations offered to emphasize keywords.
