PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Close Reading for Literature: An Annotated Guide

Overview:

Common Core Curriculum makes it clear that our young people need to be able to tackle more challenging texts. Unfortunately, many students don't know what to do when they run into a complex text. For some students, the moment they do not understand something immediately, they assume "it's too hard." They skip it or just go through the motions. Or worse, they make judgments about reading in general being worthless or boring.

Close Reading Theory says that it's okay to be a little lost, but it's not okay to stay lost. Close Readers take a multiple draft approach to reading a text and discover levels of comprehension they never knew existed.

This Resource is meant to provide a review of the three drafts of Close Reading AND it provides annotated examples of how strategic readers actually think. Inside you'll find:

• A review of the Close Reading Process
• An illustrated Guide to Text Coding for all three drafts of Close Reading.
• A short, original fiction excerpt from a bestselling author (used with permission)
• An activity for students to practice all three drafts of Close Reading.
• An annotated guide showing readers what strategic thoughts look like in each of the three drafts of reading.
