This template can be used to assess R.2 reading proficiency or as a resource for practice. I have made some changes on it to make it more accessible to students and easier to understand. I have used it with all levels of high school students and it could also be used for middle school. Be sure to check out my companion documents and Power Point that together are invaluable for helping students identify, understand and create thematic statements. Includes Checklist for Thematic Statements and Common Abstract Nouns documents.
These resources can be used for fiction or non-fiction texts.
