You may keep this up on the Smartboard or print out a personal copy for your students to keep taped to their desk.
Included: 1 slide that guides close reading. Well worth it. Helps students mark up the text.
When we read, we read passages/articles more than once. Our elementary school district preaches "1st and 2nd" reads when presented with a passage.
When we preform our "first read" we simply read for fluency as well as establish the author's purpose. Once we establish the author's purpose we are able to preform our "second read" or "close read" by jotting down notes on the page or by using a "post-it".
When we preform our close read we are interacting with the text by marking it up and making it our own.
This SmartBoard page provides close readers with guidelines for close reading.
Step 1, First Read: Summarize the author's purpose.
Step 2, Close Read: Mark up text looking for words and sentences that highlight characters, clues about character's traits and identifying the narrator. These guidelines are for literature. There are also guidelines for an informational text.
I personally keep it on my SmartBoard, but many teachers have printed out a small photocopy for the students to refer to. They tape it on their desks.
