NEXT GENERATION Science Standards:
Integrate reading into your science curriculum with the easy to use FOCUS close read format. Students will read to understand about motion and the different types of force in one close read. Through another close read they will learn vocabulary and the concept of matter as they read through the early theories that scientists believed about matter. Through the process, they will complete three levels of thinking through activities while engaging in the text multiple times.
Each step is designed for scaffolding and targeting students learning styles. Enjoy this step-by-step close reading method that is sure to help you and your students get into a steady close reading routine!
Included in each close read:
*3 Close Read Passages-
Force and Motion- Lexile 880
Early Theories of Matter- Lexile 900 & 1000 (2 versions of this close read are included for differentiation)
*2 Sets of Vocabulary Posters
*Teacher Guide and Checklist- Provides guidance and documentation for student success.
*Rubrics- 2 FOCUS rubrics are provided to help you understand the purpose and your students progress.
*2 Student Goal Trackers- Students become more aware of their thinking and learning as they track their progress.
