Close Reading pushes students beyond traditional reading comprehension activities, and into thinking not only what the text says, but also how it says it. This Close Reading Companion for The Carpenter's Gift by David Rubel and Home for Christmas by Jan Brett walks you through first, second, and third readings with your students. It includes questions for the second and third readings as you focus on the author's craft and text structure, and into third readings as students go beyond the text to make connections and determine the text's importance.
Each Close Reading Companion includes
•Questions for guided second and third readings
•Graphic organizers for first, second and third readings
•Written response pages
