Use these close reading bookmarks as a consistent reminder for students to
remember the skills, questions to ask themselves, and annotations needed for close reading.
Close reading is a “thoughtful, critical analysis of a text that focuses on significant details or patterns in order to develop a deep, precise understanding of the text's form, craft, meanings, etc. It is a key requirement of the Common Core State Standards and directs the reader's attention to the text itself.”
