Product Description
Teaching students to complete a close reading of a literary passage is not an easy task for teachers, and yet, by following a few steps, by giving students comprehensive and understandable questions, and by going through the process together, it can be done.

These passages from Arthur Miller’s play The Crucible will help you teach your students to do a close reading of a prose passage, and then give them practice to complete a close reading on their own. The questions for close reading will take them through the process no matter what text they are analyzing. Finally, the essay test will help you assess what they have learned about how to analyze and explain the literary elements in the text.

Included in this resource:
•a suggested schedule and process for taking your students through the lessons
questions for close reading that can be used on any passage
•a handout for students to use with the close reading questions
•a sample passage with an extensive answer key
six selections for students to practice their close reading skills
•an essay test based on four selected passages and including a rubric to grade student essays

In all, there is enough here for a week’s worth of close reading practice. By analyzing and unpacking these selections, students will practice their close reading skills as well as take a deeper look at some of the ideas and themes of the play. Teaching students to complete a close reading of a literary passage is a great way to prepare them for the SAT or AP tests, and it is also a great way to get them to think critically about what they read.
