20 Science-Themed, high-interest Quotes (enough for a month of student contact days) on beautifully designed envelope templates. Envelopes are 2-sided coordinating bug designs.
These Close Read Quote Notes are a perfect way to introduce students to the strategy of close reading. Close reading requires complex text, but many students do not have stamina built for long passages in the beginning. Quotes are very short pieces of text that are complex in nature.
Envelopes also have a short bio of the author of the quote, if the author is known, thus giving the close read another dimension.
20 Envelope designs in a single PDF file format. Designs are 8.5 x 11 at 300dpi.
Directions include a CLOSE READING PROTOCOL for use in the classroom and printing directions, as well as an explanation of what It means to perform a close read of text.
