  • literary and informational texts that reflect the types of texts students encounter in the classroom or everyday reading
  • authentic reading texts on interesting topics and ideas, including excerpts from well-known literary selections

  • open-ended and extended-response tasks that require students to use close reading to develop correct, complete answers
  • emphasis on the critical-thinking skills necessary for close reading
  • skill tags (labels) to identify both the standard(s) and the complexity level(s) for questions or an activity
  • diagrams and/or graphic organizers to help students organize their thoughts and responses (when approriate)
  • focus on student-created responses
