Students have to think about so many different things when reading a text - and many of them skip the important "stuff"! This graphic organizer can be used in any content area to help students think about the text they are reading before, during, and after reading that text!
It asks students to consider the title, author, publisher, and date of publication. It asks them to identify the topic of the writing, and the main idea of the text as a whole. It also asks students to identify author's purpose, point of view, and text structure.
This organizer could easily be used with every text your student reads this year! It is a word document, so feel free to alter it to suit your lesson plans.
