Have you been wanting to try close reading by are not quite sure where to begin?Are you looking for your students to become more independent readers? Time constraints make it increasingly difficult for teachers to plan differentiation in their reading instruction aligned to the Common Core Standards. And yet you want your students to obtain their reading benchmark goals, pass your district reading assessment, and most importantly, become better readers by reading and re-reading text for deeper understanding and comprehension.

This brief video explains what close reading is and how to incorporate it in your classroom in a simplistic way. A sample differentiated close reading text has been included so you can practice with your students! It even includes an engaging write the room comprehension activity that you can complete as a whole group or within a small reading group.
