Reading Comprehension graphic organizers. Skills covered include the following:
LITERARY Graphic Organizer: setting, plot, character, theme, characterization evidence & inferences, and context clues.
INFORMATIONAL Graphic Organizer #1: context clues, central idea, supporting details, organizational structures, author's perspective and purpose, text and graphic features, and summarizing.
INFORMATIONAL graphic organizer #2: compare/contrast author's viewpoints, supporting arguments, and evidence; opinion vs. fact
INFORMATIONAL graphic organizer #3: trace a central idea, main points, and supporting details; identify opinion and fact
POETRY: rhyme, internal rhyme and rhyme scheme; rhythm, meter, and alliteration; figurative language (metaphor, simile, personification, onomatopoeia, and hyperbole); context clues, and summarizing.
Each graphic organizer can be bought separately. The literary one is similar to my Novel Study Graphic Organizer, but has been adapted to use with shorter texts. These also make great activities for SUBSTITUTE PLANS once the concepts have been introduced and practiced.
