Each resource is organized by the reading standards, contains more than 120 questions, and includes questions common to the new standardized assessments.Set includes one copy of the Close-Reading Questions for Informational Text Foldout and one copy of the Close-Reading Questions for Literature Foldout. Printed on heavy, 11" x 17" card stock
