Attached are writing organizers you can use for students after reading any articles, short stories such as Time magazines, Scholastic News, novels and more. These organizers can be used with any genre. They are easy to fill in and use the common core format of a close read and citations to support student’s thinking. They also support the writing format for a well written paragraph. They are differentiated for those who need it and there is a blank one you can add your own questions to. It really helps my reluctant readers stay on task in reading groups also and gives them support with writing short responses to their reading. Happy Writing!!!
