This lesson will help your student's comprehension through close reading. I created this lesson with my students' interests in mind which is why I chose an amusement park ride article. The first day of the lesson is having your students get the GIST of the article. The second day focuses on how the text works so you are looking at the craft and structure of the article. On the third day, the students will synthesize the information. I scaffolded the questions so that by the third day the students are looking beyond the text.
If you like the lesson, look for the close reading template in my TpT store. Also, I will be creating more close reading lessons this summer so check back later! Enjoy!
