Good readers create elaborate sensory images in their minds while they read. A combination between the author’s words and the reader's schema create a complex sensory experience that allow the reader to experience the text more deeply. Many students are not creating these sensory images while they read. This reproducible guides students through the process of creating sensory images. Additionally, through the completion of this product's suggested steps, you can assess your students’ ability to use specific details from the text to make inferences (RL.1) and their ability to describe in depth a character, setting, or event in a story through specific details in the text (RL.3).
