The Icon Game: Responding to Literature with Depth and Complexity from J Taylor Education

Any time students are actively engaged in analyzing literature is valuable. Far too often, students read and respond to literature in a rote manger. The Depth and Complexity Icon Game from J Taylor Education is designed meant to for teachers and students participate in high-level discussions related to all types of literature. The game can be played in “whole group” format or at literacy station/center that is led by teachers or students. Some teachers use the Icon Game cards as mock interview questions or as an assessment tool. The Icon Game contains 8 questions for each of the Depth and Complexity Icons, and comes with two icon plastic spinners. Your students will love using the Icon Game as they develop better comprehension and communication skills.
