Product Description

Complete close reading and annotation unit with fiction and nonfiction practice

Close reading is a lifelong skill, not a strategy. That can make it very challenging to teach. Thankfully, there are strategies we can use to improve students’ close reading skills. After years of research, I created this close reading and annotation mini-unit to teach students to apply their natural reading strategies for academic purposes. No more mindless highlighting, circling, and underlining!

This mini-unit will teach students to focus their close reading and annotate with purpose making their reading efficient and effective! It will take approximately 3 to 4 45-minute periods to complete. A suggested lesson guided is included.

This resource includes:

  • "Think About Your Habits" Activity
  • Conversation Starter Cards
  • "Understand Close Reading" Activity
  • "Identify the Purpose" Activity
  • Reading Scenario Task Cards
  • Find Your Active Reading Format Activity
  • Reading Journal Example
  • Annotated Poem Example
  • Real-world connections
  • Print in gray scale or color
  • Close Reading Assignment Assessment*
  • Editable PowerPoint assessment rubric
  • Suggested answer key
  • Teacher guide

*Please note the assessment rubric is the only editable component of this mini-unit.
