**Ways to Use the Cards**
Place students in stations. Each station can represent a different standard. Have students choose cards to work on, or you can assign cards. Allow students to work independently and switch cards, or have students work together on each card.
Assign the number of cards you want completed prior to students beginning the task(s).

I was so excited to use these task cards. I had already identified that standard my students were struggling with so I choose a shot story for them to read and had them apply the what the task cards asked them to do for the reading. The reading I selected was challenging, while was intentional, and the task cards really made my students think and use the text to confirm their ideas. I strongly recommend using these task cards.
