Product Description
These four steps should help reading and literature study teachers to begin the process of close reading study of narrative literature text.

Many students are confused by the words "close reading" even though the term does suggest a scrutiny of the text. But, the questions they have might be as simple as "What am I looking for, and how do I show that I understand it?"

By beginning your class(es) with a simple format, and practicing these strategies routinely, building to a stronger analysis and more in depth writing requirements from your students, along with more complex text, you will be successfully guiding your students toward being stronger, more analytical readers and writers.
