For use in a unit that blends informational and literary texts. Designed to fit sideways into Interactive Notebooks, this printable can be used in student self-assessment prior to and after a unit on close reading. Students will mark their understanding of 9 skills and abilities for this unit.
The I Can statements are based on a selection of Common Core (CCSS) standards for 7th grade. While I have modified the statements to be student-friendly, I have retained key academic vocabulary to support the rigor of CCSS demands.
When designing your unit, ensure you are asking a variety of questions that assess each standard that is included on the I Can statements. At the end of the unit, have students self-evaluate their progress and growth.
If desired, you may cut off the marking code if you would like to create your own.
