Close Reading Passages
Close Reading (Inventions) is the first of my Reading for Understanding series. I am excited to offer this resource to you at no cost and I hope it will spark curiosity and encourage a love for Reading for Understanding in your classroom.
This resource includes 8 simple reading passages each on the history behind a different interesting invention throughout history. Each of the passage has 6 text-dependent questions asking kids to go back to the text and interact with it in different ways. By driving kids back to the text time and again, it is ensuring that they truly are reading closely and Reading for Understanding.
In addition I have also included 3 versatile graphic organizers for you to use with any reading passage you give your students!
Thank you very much for choosing Tied 2 Teaching and I wish you the very best year yet!
