Close Reads are becoming more and more important as we continue to work toward meeting the Common Core State Standards in all subject areas. Close reading of texts will help students become more strategic thinkers, readers and writers.
The pages in each resource in this bundle will work with any text pages that your students need to read as part of their coursework. They may also become more confident test takers as their comprehension skills grow !
Included in each resource:
Teacher directions for conducting a Close Read
Student direction page to glue into an Interactive Notebook or folder
Student notetaking page with headers for writing responses after each of three close reads
Student notetaking page with First, Second, and Third Read labels, no headers
Student notetaking page with blank fields for you to add your own response labels
Simple Rubric for student self-assessment and/or teacher assessment of the Close Read.
