Thinking Notes- A Close Reading Activity
During and after students read, they will answer 10 questions. If they are doing this activity correctly, they will need to go back to the passage to reflect and respond. Students are asked to predict, infer, make associations, text to text, text to self, cite textual evidence, and can respond in a visual way also. Many reading responses cater to nonfiction, however, this one is different in that it requires close reading and responses to fictional writing. Perfect for 5-8th graders.
