Want to take the guesswork out of planning for a "close read?"
This planning template will take the guesswork out of planning and executing a lesson focusing on a “close read” of a complex text. Using this template gives you guidance and options so that you can plan a focused lesson that addresses all aspects of a close read.
Within this two-page planning template, there are menu-type options so you can vary the lessons as needed depending on the complex texts that you are using. Circle some of the options, checkoff, or write-in details tailored for your specific text, standards, and students. The guide leads you through the planning process and by taking the guesswork out of making sure you have all the key components of a close read, it frees you up to plan a great lesson!
Keep Calm and Coach On!
