Close-Reading Triggers Set
Sold as a set, use these triggers to help students with their close reading.
- Eyeglasses: Initially, readers comprehend on a surface level. They read to paraphrase/retell details, summarize important concepts, and determine the main ideas.
- Microscope: Then readers zoom in to analyze the text and evaluate author decisions about word choice, organization, and purpose.
- Telescope: With a deeper understanding of the text, readers zoom out to consider visual features of the text, evaluate text quality and author credibility, and make text-to-text connections.
(Note: The telescope will have a pirate label/sticker. The item shown in the picture above has had this label removed.)
