Taking a Closer Look at Comprehension

Emily Steib, First Grade, Hidden Valley Elementary School

Curriculum Unit (pdf)


For this unit, students will be using close reading to help improve their comprehension.  Students will begin with a pretest.  The students will not be read this aloud, they will complete this independently.  After the pretest is given, the teacher will need to score them and analyze the data to show the students their scores.  The teachers will then guide the next six close readings based on how much scaffolding the students need.
