Close Reading Nonfiction Summary Intervention Pack
Running out of ideas to help your struggling readers?
Tired of being observed by your principal only to be caught without a lesson plan?
Too busy to write learning targets?
These are the reasons I wrote this intervention unit! I was frustrated with the lack of time and resources to plan for my small reading groups. I knew I needed data and lots of skill practice for my struggling readers. That's how this unit evolved. It has taken months of work to put this together. I hope you find it to be exactly what you need! If you do like it, please let me know and I will create more units like this!
This is a 76 page resource to use for your intervention or small reading groups. It is designed for 4 weeks of intense instruction. The goal is to improve reading comprehension by teaching comprehension skills explicitly. Included are six original nonfiction articles, a pre and post assessment, lessons on main idea, inferences, close reading, sharing and discussing with partners, outlining, and summaries. There are also 20 days of written lesson plans with learning targets.
A rubric is included.
