This tool is a composite of multiple ready-to-teach lessons -- all designed to help students meet CCSS standards in close reading by directly teaching students to read between the lines! It begins with the first logical step in the process: recognizing unspoken clues. Then, it progresses, methodically, to the ultimate step: creating personal inferences! Each step is amazingly fun to accomplish. My students never enjoyed learning so much as they did when these lessons were taught. Believe it or not, many of them actually volunteered to tell me that these lessons made a big difference in their ability to infer and read between the lines!Students will thank you for bringing these lessons to them! And, your colleagues will love you if you share!
