There are many things fighting for a student’s attention in today’s busy world. With so many distractions and demands on their attention, the key details in text and passages have a way of slipping right by students when their focus drifts or shifts.
This “print and go/no prep” reading exercise offers some support with that issue. It will make Grade 7-9 students read with greater attentiveness and practice a higher depth of understanding, as well as keep them concentrating for longer than normal.
It also offers a challenge activity for them at the end that you can implement if you choose to, and if you like the format and idea behind this printable it can easily be adopted and applied to your own texts.
