Anticipation Guides are ideal for guiding students through the reading of nonfiction articles. This anticipation guide is designed to engage the reader before, during, and after the reading of the article. The statements on the Anticipation Guide are targeted for main idea and inference skills. Take a look at other Anticipation Guides in The Teaching and Learning Vault.
Complete instructions and an answer key are provided in the file. When I use this activity in my classroom, I have students "parallel" read and annotate with a partner. However, I wrote the instructions for independent reading and annotating with the assumption that many teachers may prefer to use it that way. The document was made in Microsoft Word using the narrow margins setting. When you download it, it will likely be necessary to change your margins to narrow margins in order for the formatting to be ideal.
Note: The article was obtained from Newsela and is cited as such on the documents. The Anticipation Guide is solely my work.
