This product includes a set of text-dependent increasingly complex questions created using the Common Core State Standards. The text can be found at newsela.com and is a 680 Lexile Level.
This product also includes a Student Answer Sheet for students to use during Close Reading or small group instruction to record their answers.
I suggest that this product is used over the course of a week for Close Reading instruction in a small group setting. Additionally, I suggest that the teacher and students read the text before each new "Level" in the question set.
