This set includes a main poster: Good readers are thinkers. Underneath you will post four close reading questions. These questions get students thinking deeper into their reading for better understanding. Students can focus on one question at at time until they become independent readers and thinkers.
The questions come from the book, Closer Reading, Grades 3-6: Better Prep, Smarter Lesson, Deeper Comprehension (Corwin Literacy) by Nancy Boyles.
