FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON - “Critical Thinking Reading Response”
by Christine Cadalzo
3rd - 7th Grade
This is a reading response sheet that can be used with almost any text. Student read and think about a question, then develop an answer and gather supporting evidence. Students then meet in groups to discuss their ideas and revise their initial responses.
This printable is easily differentiated for readiness by providing simpler or more complex texts and questions. By providing text choice or questions, it can also be differentiated by interest.
This response sheet can be used in content areas as well as with fiction or read alouds. It can also be used with literature circles or small guided groups for support.
In upper grades, the first half can be completed for homework, allowing for more discussion time in class.
