Look closely at 2nd Look Sentences. You'll find a pair of sentences that use identical words - in identical order - except for one word that changes place. Can you spot the difference? More importantly, can you tell how the change effects the meaning of each sentence?

Based on the fundamental principles of Close Reading, in which students reflect on individual words and sentences, the fun and engaging 2nd Look Sentences challenge students to think deeply about words and syntax.

2nd Look Sentences also provide teachers with an easy-to-use formative assessment tool to spot check reading comprehension skills. When you have your class work in pairs, you can walk around the room and listen for students who may struggle with identifying how sentence meaning differs through subtle changes in word order. Having students hand in written responses can also give you insight into which students struggle with paraphrasing.
