20 Reflective Questions To Help Students Respond To Common Core Texts

20 Reflective Questions To Help Students Respond To Common Core Texts | Common Core | Scoop.it

"The Common Core Standards represent a shift in the traditional instruction of English-Language Arts in the average American public school K-12 classroom. While there are several differences in the new standards, one of the most interesting (in addition to the expectation of technology integration) is the trend from literary to non-fiction texts."

This could be used as a great anchor chart for students to see when when reading text and preparing to respond to the text. Although the title says 20 questions I count 21 questions on this visual, questions that are require critical thinking skills, questions that may be used with a variety of texts (as required by Common Core).

The questions are in three categories (information below quoted from the article):

* Within the text - summaries, sequence of events, conflict/resolution, etc

* Beyond the text - Inferencing, implicit ideas, evaluation, etc.

* About the text - Author purpose, author style, characterization, etc.

The post also relates the areas to Bloom's Taxonomy. You might also look at the question relative to Depth of Knowledge.

Mind Mapping and the Common Core

Mind Mapping and the Common Core | Common Core | Scoop.it

Mind Mapping is a graphical way to represent ideas and concepts. It is a visual thinking tool that helps structure information, helping you to better analyze, comprehend, synthesize, recall, and generate new ideas. 
In a mind map, information is structured in a way that resembles much more closely how your brain actually works. Since it is an activity that is both analytical and artistic, it engages your brain in a much, much richer way, helping in all its cognitive functions. It is easy and FUN!
