FOCUS is a newly developed method that helps students become more comfortable with close reads. It is an acronym that is easy to remember and provides a consistent method for students as they struggle through the text developing understanding of content. Each close read created by Two Inspire is centered around this technique with activities that promote higher level thinking and consistency for young readers.
Included is a FREE Recycling Close Read that follows this structure. Give it a try! 3rd-5th grade Science Close Reads are being developed.
