This product includes 9 passages from the novel Forgotten Fire by Adam Bagdasarian. It also includes a student example response and close reading. These passages are set up in a way that instructs students to close read them, listing specific tasks for each passage.
Close reading has been one of the best ways my students have learned to interact with the text in order to create real analysis - not just summary. They also LOVE this book!
These close readings also include 2 different approaches to responses about the passages. One assignment asks for a response and reflection, while the other assignment asks for student-created critical thinking questions and a response.
The close readings have some version of an "I can" statement attached in order to help students understand the purpose.
