The new core talks extensively about conducting close reads. A common best practice is to have students “read with a pencil”. This allows them to find evidence, quotes, etc. directly from the text to mark and review later. I have created this toolbox page with common symbols for my class to use. They make these marks as they go along the passage (during the 1st read) so we can come back and discuss them later (usually during the 2nd and 3rd reads). #closereading #freebies #reading
