The Text-Dependent Questions Handout for Close Reading page is a reading reference page for upper and middle grade students.
When you close read, you should consider many questions to get a deeper understanding of the purpose and information presented in the text. Each reading and re-reading should answer a different question.
Students should keep this page handy during pre-reading, reading, and re-reading texts. It includes 3 questions for the pre-read, and 20 questions for the read and re-read that focus on structure, topic, information, language, and author perspective.
