Product Description
Add DEPTH to your informational text unit!

This resource includes 140 printable pages that can be used to launch informational text centers in your classroom as each skill/strategy is introduced through a mini-lesson. The centers are designed to reteach and reinforce. ALSO...the resources could also easily be adapted to use with your whole class as a guided activity!

If applicable, most of the direction sheets match up with recording sheets for reflection. Each center was created to address the Common Core Standards in a Readers Workshop friendly way, with special attention paid to the author's craft, fluency, text structure, text features, and teaching my students to be reflective, strategic learners! :)

NOTE: This does not include recommended texts. It can be used with leveled texts for differentiation, read alouds, etc. Make it fit into your current framework! It's versatile!
