Trust me, these may look too "babyish", but my students still love them.
I often used the Close Reading technique in my 4th Grade classroom, but I wasn't quite sure how to adapt it for my middle schoolers. Then, I thought about what the critical skills are that all students, regardless of age, should practice. I always like to have articles available, so I hatched this plan.
This packet includes:
~A teacher direction page
~A student direction page
This activity increases the following skills:
•Asking questions about what students are reading
•Increasing content-area vocabulary

Do you use Close Reading in your classroom to teach or enrich? I'd love to hear how!
