Day Three: Students complete a Reading Response Exit Slip on the reading strategy.
Each product also includes a rubric, differentiated instruction planner, a sample anchor chart for the reading strategy, fully scripted minilessons that take students through the gradual release of responsibility, and samples of student work to show as examples.
