You may also choose to model close reading strategies for students and allow them to practice marking up the text and answering the comprehension questions.
Every title is accompanied by four rigorous text dependent questions, printed side-by-side for saving paper and ink.

~Side-by-side printing is great for saving paper and ink but is even better for promoting students looking back into the text for their answers.
