I’m back for my next installment on close reading!
I am so excited to FINALLY share what I have been working so hard on. A few weeks back, I asked my Facebook followers to rate their understanding and knowledge of close reading. I was shocked to learn that so many teachers didn’t really know much about it (me being one of them). How can we be required to implement things in our classroom if we don’t have the proper training and knowledge?
As you can see, I broke the definition of close reading into three key parts:
1.) Purposeful re-reading
3.) Use of complex texts
In an effort to avoid information overload, this blog post will focus on Purposeful re-reading and Analysis. I will address the Use of complex texts in my next post.
