These Close Reading Companions are a way for students to make the connection between the reading strategy/skill taught in your Benchmark Advance minilessons to how the strategy may look in the form of a test question. Each page includes a graphic organizer and an “Apply It!” test question. These can be used during whole group lessons or as a center activity. Print individually or give it to students as a booklet at the start of your unit.
Included in This Resource:
- Student checklist page
- Companion pages (one for each close reading lesson) that relates to the guided practice portion of the lesson
- Answer Key page for Apply It! questions
- Google Slides version of all of the above
Each Close Reading Companion Page Has:
- The reading strategy/skill in the upper right corner
- The reading standards listed under the strategy/skill
- A “Close Reading Purpose” that is consistent with the TRS
- A chart, organizer, map, or some student response section
- “Apply It!” test question that applies the strategy in the form of a question
