Close Reading Strategy Visual Prompts

A visual resource aimed at students to support Close Reading strategies in the classroom.  Developed by teachers for teachers.  Supports teachers to achieve the underlying purpose and goal of Close Reading:  “The teacher’s goal in the use of Close Reading is to gradually release responsibility to students—moving from an environment where the teacher models for students the strategies to one where students employ the strategies on their own when they read independently” (Brown and Kappes 2012, p. 2).  The article that is the source of this quote is also attached.
