Informational Reading text center for 6th grade students [however, any one of these steps could be adapted for one grade higher or lower]. Here's a break down of standards organized in user friendly worksheets for students who can work independently or with a small group. Place these 9 steps of focused clear instruction on a foldable display to create a reading center for nonfiction text.
Questions will apply to any nonfiction material: editorial, science, technology, speech, historical, biographies, essays on art, etc.
Students can visit this center throughout the year and target any one or all 9 skill areas. Information can then be displayed on a poster or collected digitally. Total of 19 pages included, 9 student working sheets.
Last, print as a poster, enlarge to 120%, and the sheets should orient themselves well on a foldable display board.
