I use this packet along with the close reading intro powerpoint to help introduce students to close reading. I chose to use poetry because this is what my students struggle the most with, but you can change it to meet your needs.
You do not have to use the powerpoint with this packet, but it may help. You can take my basic format and create your own presentation for students. You can purchase the powerpoint in my store.
I copy and print one of these packets for each student so they can follow along with the notes and information presented. (Good for ELL or SPED)
