Description

This resource, taken from my larger unit, Introduction to Close Reading for Middle and High School, includes two sets of directions for doing a close reading of any text.

One set works with a piece of literature, and asks students to summarize, annotate for key elements (character, motivation, literary devices, inferences, questions, etc.), and complete a metacognitive sentence starter to show student's thinking, among other things. This also includes a spot for students to insert a theme strand on which you are currently focusing.

The second set of directions works for any non-fiction passage, and asks students to summarize, annotate for key elements (main idea, supporting evidence, author's thesis, rhetorical devices, etc.), and complete a metacognitive sentence starter to show student's thinking, among other things. This can be used across content areas, for any non-fiction text.
