This is one of my most POPULAR units!!! This unit will help you teach your students the skill of CLOSE READING using any text. The structure of this unit will help your students learn how to read and reread the text carefully and purposefully to develop an understanding of what the author wrote.
Using CLOSE READING strategies will help students meet the C.C.S.S. requirements of understanding "topic specific vocabulary" and answering "text dependent questions." The use of CLOSE READING strategies will also benefit students when they need to provide evidence and reasons when answering text dependent questions.
I designed this generic CLOSE READING unit to fit universal topics. I hope that you find the unit general enough to fit the needs of responding to any close reading topic.
I have also included png templates for the instructional pages and one anchor poster to allow you the freedom of inserting your own text within your word processing program.
This purchase contains:
*General Lesson Plans - single day, multiple day, OR five day plan for a generic "Close Reading" topic
*11 anchor posters
*12 instructional worksheets (use in single page, booklet, OR packet form)
*7 full page png templates (adapt this unit for your particular class)
Thank you for your consideration,
Mostly Simple Margo
