These resources help students learn to do this kind of close reading by providing practice with text marking, a proven, powerful tool for building comprehension skills, such as finding main idea and details, identifying cause and effect, and using context clues. Also includes a Companion Folder filled with whiteboard-ready files providing another great way to model, practice, and apply the technique!
