Because these cards are meant for discussion or as writing prompts, they are not simple comprehension questions. Rather, they require students to explain, infer, analyze, and evaluate. Many of these cards require students to support their answers with evidence from the text. Others ask students to form an opinion about a character or event. Use in partners, with small groups, or with the entire class.
