Close-Reading Questions Foldouts

by Smekens Education

When preparing for a close reading, teachers must prepare text-dependent questions that scaffold students’ thinking about the author’s ideas. Broken into the three phases of close reading, the Close-Reading Questions foldouts allow teachers to select the most relevant questions for each text. Two different sets of questions are available (literature/fiction and informational text/nonfiction). Each resource is organized by the reading standards, contains more than 120 questions, and includes questions common to the new standardized assessments. The Close-Reading Questions Set includes one copy of the Close-Reading Questions for Informational Text Foldout and one copy of the Close-Reading Questions for Literature Foldout.

Physical copies are printed on heavy, 11" x 17" card stock.

Digital copies are downloadable PDF (Acrobat) Document Files (Product Note: A download link will be sent via email after purchase. No physical products will be shipped.)


Watch as Kristina Smekens explains how asking the right questions during reading meets the requirements of the college and career-ready standards as well as preparing students for standardized tests.
