Product Description
This clearly organized worksheet is designed to maximize information, organization, critical thinking, and page space. So many literacy experts stress the need for Wide Reading, the reading of a variety of texts from multiple academic disciplines, as the key to increasing reading level, vocabulary, and critical thinking among struggling readers, but this can leave teachers struggling with how to evaluate and assess, and even create assignments for, something that is so varied.
Enter the Wide Reading Worksheet, your one-stop assignment for all non-fiction articles. This worksheet is designed for students to choose their own article multiple times throughout the year, or even read an article of your own choice, and then use this one worksheet to evaluate their comprehension and critical thinking about the piece. The WRW begins with designated space for students to write their Title, Author, Genre, and basic Source information and serves as a building block for later Citation and Style Guide instruction. The WRW then guides students to critically creating a a summary of the Central Idea through use of Central Question making and A-I-R, a system that allows students to answer their Central Questions through Analysis, Interpretation, and Reflection. The WRW finishes with a one sentence Central Idea summary that includes a quotation from the article.

This .zip file contains a PDF copy of the Wide Reading Worksheet for Duplication and a four-slide PowerPoint to introduce the system to the teacher or students. It is intended for multiple, perhaps even weekly, uses throughout the school year.
