This is a useful note taking guide to help students analyze a nonfiction text. This file includes three different printable options. I have also included a teacher direction page with links to my favorite informational text websites.
★ interpret the author’s thesis statement and draw a picture that helps them understand the main idea of the text
★ determine the author's key points
★create student generated questions using the QAR (Question, Answer, Response) method
★ answer any questions posed by the author or teacher
You can use this note taking guide for:
✔current event articles
✔nonfiction readings from CK-12
✔articles from science world magazines, Newsela, Readworks, etc.
✔ jigsaw reading expert groups
