I’m back with my next Close Reading resource for you! If you and your students enjoyed my five other seasonal and holiday Close Reading resources, you will love my Halloween Close Reading Passages, Text-Dependent Questions & More!
I’ve also included a step-by-step implementation guide. I’ve researched several strategies for close reading and have developed a process that will make your life easier, and help your students develop skills to read for deeper meaning.
These printable annotation guides are a resource to help students quickly annotate or mark up the text using symbols. I’ve included two different levels of the printables.
Is this little bat not the cutest thing ever? This Close Reader Poster is a great visual reminder to help students understand their role as a close reader.
Text-Dependent Questions, Writing Prompts, and Graphic Organizers
Each passage includes text-dependent questions for each of the three themes or categories in the Common Core Anchor Standards (Key Ideas and Details, Craft and Structure, and Integration of Knowledge and Ideas). The questions require students to cite evidence from the text to support their answers.
In addition to the text-dependent questions, I’ve also included graphic organizers for key ideas and details, vocabulary, main idea, and more!
Like I said above, this is only a small preview of what’s included!
