Reading Comprehension Passages & Questions
Close Reading is my favorite thing! Students need explicit instruction and practice with finding evidence in text in order to answer text-dependent questions.
These mini lessons teach students to go back to the text in a thoughtful, careful and precise way. The text dependent questions are directly under the text passage. This reinforces students going back to the text for their answer. Colorful posters are also included for whole group practice.
