Close Read Assignment and Rubric (Informational Text)
Product Description
Reduce Prep Time! Use it every week... all year!
Close Reading is a critical, but often difficult skill to teach (and to learn!) This close reading rubric will make it easier! I have designed it to determine the meaning in informational text (main idea, cause and effect, sequence).

You can use this rubric for homework or in class.
Day 1: Students read the text and complete a specific learning activity.
Days 2-4: Students actively reread the text and complete different assignments to further deepen their understanding.

Keep parents actively involved by having them sign the rubric. Without the signature, the highest score a student may earn is an 80%. Parent involvement increases and grades rise when students use it consistently. I included one that doesn’t require a signature so you can easily use it during school as well.

There are so many ways to use this rubric! Here are some suggestions:
-Use in conjunction with your reading book.-Use as writing prompts for journals.
-Use in guided reading groups and literature circles as discussion prompts.
-Use as prompts for partner discussions.
- Choose one to display on the document camera for the whole class to use as a prompt.
-Allow students to choose the assignment for discussion/ writing (always very popular!)
-Use as a center activity.

*Bonus pages! An extra rubric for short school weeks, and I one that doesn’t require a signaturel.
