24 close reading activities are currently included in this download, ready to print and go! There are currently 15 fiction and 9 non-fiction passages. More will be coming!
These close reading activities have students focus first on reading the passage multiple times while searching for unknown words, new concepts, and key points. Then, the students answer questions ranging from Knowledge to Synthesis on Bloom's Taxonomy.
The nature of close reading, as well as the passage and questions lend this activity to Standardized Test Practice as well. The questions and activities are designed to help students practice analyzing a difficult, technical nonfiction text and respond to a variety of questions in preparation for similar techniques used in ACT Aspire and PARCC testing, as well as on the SATs. Close reading is a strategy that is encouraged through Common Core and most state standards, and is best completed with short passages such as the ones provided here.
