These guiding questions will lead your students through a 5-day close reading of two articles pertaining to the issue of homelessness. The first article describes the efforts of a non-profit to provide tiny houses to the homeless, and the second details how some houses have been removed. Both articles are available at multiple Lexile levels to allow for differentiation.
*4 days of guiding questions, each addressing a different standard. Questions progress from DOK 1 to DOK 3.
*4 standards-based chart templates to teach the standard before annotating for that skill
*1 DOK 4 journal question to end the close reading process
Note: Due to copyright protections, I CANNOT reprint the articles in this close reading pack. The links to the articles are provided so that you can access and print them directly from the source.
