Have your students use this anchor sheet to help focus their close reading skills in their Independent Book Clubs!
Students will focus on using the six signposts as discussed in Notice and Note: Strategies for Close Reading by Kayleen Beers and Robert Probst. These signposts are applicable to fictional texts at a third grade level and above. The signposts include:
- Aha Moments
- Tough Questions
- Words of the Wiser
- Again and Again
- Memory Moment
The anchor sheet is color-coded and includes both the description of each signpost as well as "The Big Question" (text dependent anchor questions) to help students understand what they are looking for.
