Help students understand what it means to be a close reader with the 21 pieces in this informative Close Reading Mini Bulletin Board set. Use the pieces to introduce students to reading strategies that will enable them to gain a deeper understanding of a text by asking text-dependent questions and expressing their comprehension using evidence-based terms. This set will also help students learn to work together as a class to closely read and further investigate a text using the text annotation cards. In addition, you can use the content-rich pieces for instruction, for reference, and to support core learning standards!
The pieces in this set are interactive teaching tools. They are great for use in small groups where students can have hands on manipulation of the pieces. They are also perfect for use under a document camera to teach/demonstrate concepts to the entire class. They also work well in a pocket chart or center to reinforce concepts already taught to the whole class.
Tip: Use the Evidence-Based Terms card to spark a class discussion about additional evidence-based terms that students can use when discussing a text after reading closely. Create a bulletin board display featuring these student-generated terms.
