Student Graphic Organizers for Close Reading
These graphic organizers can be used to guide middle grade readers through close readings of novels or nonfiction books. The organizers allow the reader to dissect a book's characters, setting, and plot. They also allow the reader to interact with a book in a personal way using prediction and recommendation questions. Great for summer reading assignments.
If you are looking for a novel to use with these graphic organizers, take a look at Eleven by Tom Rogers. I have chapter-by-chapter close reading questions with an answer key that pairs nicely with these graphic organizers. You can find the close reading questions for Eleven under reading passages on this Web site.
