Product Description
We all know we should be teaching our students how to close read. But the reality is, it’s hard to find time to pick a text worthy of a close read AND create a Close Reading Unit (with text-dependent questions) to go along with it!

This resource is a solution to that problem! Islandborn by Junot Diaz is such a rich, multi-layered book, making it a perfect choice for a Close Reading Unit.

This Close Reading Unit allows you to teach students how to deeply analyze Islandborn through 3 different lenses across 3 days:

Day 1 – What Does the Text Say?
General Understanding
Key Ideas and Details

♦ Day 2 – How Does the Text Work?
Vocabulary
Structure
Author’s Craft

♦ Day 3 - What Does the Text Mean?
Author’s Purpose
