Students perform a close read of, "Sonnet 29" and analyze it through annotation and discussion to gain a deeper understanding. Students will read the text multiple times, making annotations to interact with the text through questioning and forming ideas. They will then discuss their annotations and findings and take part in a student led and teacher facilitated dialogue involving text dependent questions. A close read will benefit any classroom and lends itself to the Common Core standards and the Danielson Framework. The lesson includes an introduction to close reads and the instructions for implementation.
This close read includes:
Teacher Overview for conducting a close read lesson
Student Annotation Reference Guide
6 text dependent questions meant to discuss within a small group and review as a class.
