PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

NEWLY UPDATED and much improved:
Help students become active readers of nonfiction and guide them in how to glean the big ideas from informational texts, respond personally, question, answer, and summarize what they have learned.

This packet contains 14 different nonfiction/informational templates, graphic organizers, reading strategies, and bookmarks. These could be used to guide your minilessons, guided reading/small group teaching, and for content area readings from textbooks and other informational strategies.

Skills include: previewing the text, examining text features and their purpose, big ideas, supporting details, personal responses, asking questions, etc.

I have used many of these strategy sheets as a generic format that can be used with any nonfiction guided reading, student-chosen informational books, student magazines, or science/social studies textbook chapters.

Strategies sheets include:
-Fact/Question/Personal Response
-PQ3R template
-PQ3R strategy bookmark
-Scaffold for how to read info text that is not broken into sections with subheadings
-a before, during, after student handout/resource
-a before/during/after sheet that can be used with any nonfiction text
-nonfiction thinking bookmark
-two graphic organizers for collecting details to support the main idea/supporting the main idea with details
-another set of two graphic organizers for figuring out how all the details fit together
-modified KWL that encourages students to modify misconceptions
-a tool for turning subheadings/facts/details into summarizing important parts of texts
