This resource provides strategies for close reading and annotation of text that can be
used in non-ELA courses. Especially those contents that are vocabulary specific.
Subjects, like science, that are vocabulary dependent can be daunting for students.
As teachers, we are content experts and jargon doesn’t bother us. But forgetting that
others especially students think of the content we know as a foreign language can
make subjects seem scary.
Includes a fun and fictitious activity that can spice up any
close reading program.
