Close Reading Guides
Expertly developed Close Reading Teacher's Guides are designed to help teachers guide students to explore text at different levels of meaning. Teachers model and then scaffold students in grappling with complex text to determine meaning, finding clues in the text and illustrations to help figure out vocabulary, exploring themes and central messages across texts, making inferences and intertextual connections, understanding story grammar, practicing academic language, and inspiring students to discuss and write meaningful responses to text-dependent questions that are answered with support from evidence found in the text.
Book-By-Book Reading Comprehension Assessments
A newly added Close Reading Guide feature in Reading Series 2 is an optional criterion-referenced comprehension assessment that can be delivered after each book’s foundational skills and close reading instruction.
