PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Question Stems for Close Reads of Literature and Informational Texts

Need some ideas when it comes to asking your students questions or planning Close Reads? This product contains over 120 different comprehension question stems that can be used during reading time, science, or social studies. Depending on the purpose and text, you complete the question stems to ask your students questions that encourage higher order thinking skills. The stems will help you in creating Close Read questions for any text, whether it is literature or non-fiction. The questions will lead to a deeper discussion of any text. You can even give students the stems and let them formulate the questions after reading a text.

***If you are purchasing to share with your grade level/school, please purchase multiple licenses***

This file includes information on how to use the question stems, helpful links, tips for recording student responses, and 2 sets of color coded (based on Common Core domains) question stems: one for Reading Literature and the other for Reading Informational. The question stems include the CCSS anchor standard number and the Bloom's Taxonomy level. There are over 120 different question stems included. These stems can be used for Close Reads.

Also included are checklists for the anchor standards and grades K-8, literature and informational text AND for grades 6-8 history/social studies and science/technical texts. There are 2 sets of checklists. One set has all the CCSS on one page for those teachers who want to hit each standard before repeating a standard. The other set is domain specific for those teachers who would like to focus on one domain at a time.

There are also black and white question stem cards to save ink. You can print these onto colored paper to get the color coded cards by domain. For example you can print all the Key Ideas & Details on pink paper, etc. if you don't want to use color ink.

Each card has Webb's Depth of Knowledge levels and Bloom's taxonomy labeled on it.
