I created this resource to help students read texts both with a partner AND independently and for a SPECIFIC purpose. I’ve researched and implemented many various strategies for close reading. This pack will take your students through a weekly process of passage and practice techniques. The students will analyze text through annotation symbols AND through answering text dependent questions that are completed after the fourth read. The cumulative writing passage allows students to select a writing topic where they will be synthesizing the information they have learned and even apply it to themselves. This will be a great bulletin board or portfolio piece!
