Use this checklist to review existing questions with a text, or to jumpstart writing new questions to accompany a text.

Close Reading of a text, and text-dependent questions, are aligned with College and Career Readiness Reading Anchor Standard 1: “Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it; cite specific textual evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text.” Apply this standard to texts of appropriate complexity as outlined by Reading Anchor Standard 10: “Read and comprehend complex literary and informational texts independently and proficiently.”
