Check out this everyday reading response template to help build student comprehension and attentiveness to critical portions of text. It’s an excellent tool for daily Close Reading. With this template students will practice some key Close Reading skills and, because it’s so easily reused every day, they’ll practice them regularly. This is important as we give students more and more opportunities to close read on their own, or “Solo” as it’s called in our forthcoming book, Reading Reconsidered (due out in February and ready for pre-order now). Download the tool by clicking on the Download button, and read more about how to use the tool in this blog post.
