Close Reading

This awesome resource teaches middle and high school students how to close read.

Scaffolding the process by starting with cartoons and photos, students are provided with thorough and engaging models to copy, and then interesting pieces to practice with.

Included in this resource are:
-Why Close Read - what the experts say
-Close Reading Strategy Sheet
-3 Cartoons
-3 Photos
-2 Song Lyrics
-2 Poems
-2 Excerpts from popular teen literature
-2 Pieces of nonfiction
-Plus, 6 models for teachers to reference or show students, with colorful, thoughtful Close Reading annotations to inspire critical thinking and foster classroom discussions

I copy this whole packet, so that students can take notes on the models, and then practice immediately after. When the unit is over, they have an excellent resource to help them Close Read.
