Product Description
The CLOSE Read Strategy (11 X 17 placemat) is a metacognitive instructional procedure that uses the word close as an acronym and provides teachers and students with a brain friendly step by step guide to conducting a close read of complex text. The role of vocabulary and the strategies for determining the meanings of unknown words are foundational to the skill of conducting a close read and a priority in the Common Core State Standards for literacy. If students are expected to read at high levels of text complexity, they must develop word consciousness, the skill of inferring and problem solving strategies.
Each verb in the CLOSE Read Strategy represents a spectrum of viewing or shades of meaning; check, look, observe study, examine. It can also be viewed as a continuum of viewing.
