Common Core Strategies: Understanding Standard RL.5 Characteristics of Genres

Poetry and drama (plays) are often the forgotten reading genres.  Being able to infer, interpret, and identify text details in a wide variety of genres is ideal.  These task cards teach students elements of poetry and drama and are written at different levels of Bloom's Taxonomy so that students will know and analyze information within these two genres. The task cards are self-teaching so that students or small groups can work independently.  The task cards also come with a printable box to make storage and use convenient.Click Here To Access Them

Beginning in the third grade level, this Common Core Standard (RL.5) gets wild and crazy. Students are expected to utilize terms such as stanza and scene when referring to different sections of a text.  By the time they get to fourth grade, they must understand rhythm, meter, the purpose of stage directions, and etc.

I keep a mini poster and a larger poster for students to use as a guide.  The miniature version can easily be stored inside of their notebooks.  The larger versions are kept on my walls.  This way, students have a handy guide to help them.
