Close Reading Comprehension Strategies | Usage & Idea Guide

  • This graphic organizer assists with close reading and offers support for before, during, and after reading. Summarizing, visualizing, predicting, finding the main idea, finding supporting details, questions, activating prior knowledge, and making connections are all included on this! This graphic organizer can be used across multiple content areas and multiple grade levels and would also work as intervention support. It can help scaffold for students with reading challenges or for particularly difficult reading texts.
  • Any of these questions can be enriched by requiring students to answer, “Why?” or “Where did you find that information?”
  • This document would be well-used in "flipped classrooms." Students can read a text outside of class and come back to class to discuss and respond using this sheet as a guide and structure.
  • Also consider using this graphic organizer as a  whole/small group. Everyone can read a text at one time and use this sheet to structure and focus the class and discussion.
  • Pre-complete certain sections of this sheet to aid students who may benefit from this accommodation prior to reading a text
  • Use as part of your assessment cycle of pretesting, checking for understanding, and/or posttesting.
  • Consider enlarging at a local printing company or education agency to use as an anchor chart or large group teaching tool.
  • Enlarge on an Elmo, overhead projector, or interactive whiteboard for whole group instruction and discussion.
  • This sheet works well for all subject areas and texts!
  • Use as part of carousel brainstorming.
  • Assign specific students or specific groups particular columns, boxes, or rows and then share those with other students or groups.
  • Cut apart the document on the lines and use as a game board/puzzle for review purposes. Photographs can be made of these for record keeping and sharing purposes. This can also be sent home as a review, communication, and sharing tool.
  • Print on cardstock and laminate. This allows the document to be used repeatedly by writing on it with dry erase or wet erase markers. Photographs or photocopies can be made of these for record keeping and sharing purposes.
  • Use as part of interactive notebooks. Print size may need to be adjusted depending on the size of notebooks being used.
  • Assign different texts or portions of a text to a specific color of sheet. Print each sheet on a different color to easily distinguish it from the others or to assign students to pick up a specific sheet based on needs and preferences.
  • Allow students to answer each questions in a different color of ink or pencil to increase engagement, interest, and potential retention of material. I believe color increases learning.
  • Consider the implications (hearing English in context and in content area) and use of this sheet and different texts with learners of English as as additional language.
  • Print multiple copies of this sheet and comb-bind, spiral-bind, or place in a three-ring binder. Students can then keep a record of all of the texts listened to over a given period of time and use it as a study and reference tool.
  • Ways to differentiate this document include allowing the use of a scribe, allowing oral completion, have someone complete portions of this sheet prior to student use, assign different numbers of boxes to complete, assign specific boxes to complete, allow students to work with peer(s), assign different numbers of summary sentences, allow the use of additional pages for more fluent writers, use of colored pens, chunking the assignment over a period of time, adjust due dates and completion times, and completing this sheet as a whole group.
