Product Description
Do you want to empower your students with the skills and confidence to complete a close reading of any literary text?

Learning to do a close reading of a literary passage is an important skill for so many reasons. When your students learn how to complete a close reading of a literary text, they will

• know how to break down a text for a timed essay

• sharpen their critical thinking skills

• be less likely to fall for manipulative journalism or advertisements

enjoy understanding how authors use literary elements to create meaning

• read literature on a deeper level

• be prepared for the SAT or AP exams

• be empowered to tackle the most challenging readings

In teaching my students to be critical thinkers who analyze what they read, I have dedicated many hours to taking them through a close reading of a literary passage. I always used the free handouts that I found online, but I found that they never really explained the process in a way that made sense to students. So I ended up explaining in my own words what they should be doing. Eventually, I developed a way to take them through a text—but this took me years. So I decided to develop a guide for teachers who are new to teaching this way.

The questions and handout in this resource can be used for any text, but they will work especially well on a challenging or dense passage of non fiction.
