This is a CLOZE, with a Z, reads product. Not close... Do you know the difference?
Cloze Reading is reading closure practice required when readers fill in the blanks left in text. Readers use their knowledge and prior experiences they have. Cloze Reading helps to model problem solving reading strategies. When text is omitted, readers need to use reading strategies and cues in the text to complete sentences. When using this as an instructional strategy, teachers help students focus on: phonics, visual cues, sight words, vocabulary, predicting and cross checks. This type of activity help student's use of language structure cues, meaning cues, and background knowledge to predict unknown words.
