Product Description
Close reading is a wonderful 3 step reading strategy that really helps students analyze and comprehend more difficult informational text. Students read the passage three times with a different goal in each step as they read. There are MANY different versions of close reading, this is just the one that has worked for me in my science-based reading class!

The 3 steps are:

1. Getting the Gist: Identifying Main Idea & Formulating Questions
2. Digging Deeper: Identifying Key Words & Ideas
3. Put It All Together: Answer Your Questions in Constructed Responses & Using Text Evidence, Relate Text to Self

This is a great little close reading guide to help your students analyze tough {and sometimes unmotivating} informational and nonfiction text. AWESOME for standardized test prep for constructed response (using evidence to support your answer).

Looking for a great project to use with nonfiction or informational text? Then check out my Comprehending ANY Nonfiction Text Close Reading Lap Book Project! This close reading guide IS INCLUDED in the project product! So please be careful not to purchase this product along with the comprehensive project! :)
