Close Reading Account For Students

These forms guide students in documenting and becoming more aware of their close reading skills.  Forms are available in 3 levels: Primary (Dark Blue), Intermediate (Green) & Upper Grades (Light Blue). In response to the need to shift instructional strategies to highlight close reading, we have developed a close reading kit which includes the 3 levels of reading forms. This kit grew out of concern about how to document students' close reading and is meant to be an active tool that students use during guided reading, independent reading and writing, and in the language and literacy centers.
