This resource is chock-full of close reading activities perfect for distance learning or in-class learning. Everything includes answers (aside from the open writing assignments).

There is a link (included in both the student and teacher copies) of the blank or student version that makes sharing with and presenting to the class super easy. This allows teachers to post questions in front of the class without having to write them out or post them in Zoom/virtual class settings. This saves time and ink for sure.

This resource is designed to be used in part as needed, or as a whole for a thorough and in-depth lesson.
