Product Description
This activity is designed to aid middle school students in the first step of close reading informational text: Previewing the text. Students view 5 PowerPoint slides of newspaper headlines and answer questions on an accompanying handout. Students pay attention to author's purpose, along with determining meaning based on subheadings, pictures, and captions. I have used this with my students and it helps them remember to determine meaning through previewing with future assignments.
