    Close Reading and Text Dependent Questions

    We will be reviewing our questioning and clarification skills this week.  We will use a guide for creating and asking ourselves text dependent questions about passages selected from past standardized ELA exams.  Use the close reading strategies we've already learned (title predictions, annotation/margin notes, numbering paragraphs, summarizing sections and highlighting or underlining) to complete two pages of the packet per day.  For each passage, refer to the guide to select two to three text dependent questions that you should be able to answer verbally (or silently) on your own.

    You can download the lesson materials here:

    As usual, please e-mail me your work by Friday, May 8th.
