While almost any classroom activity can be adapted for Literacy & Learning Centers, these Close Reading posters make it easy for teachers to get students to explore complex texts. Incorporate mini-lessons as necessary (review or teach concepts like diction, connotation, metaphor, point of view, etc.) then choose passages from the text or texts that are suitable for analysis and close reading. Students can work together, as a whole class or in smaller groups, to form first impressions. Then divide them up and encourage students to have small group discussions in centers. The teacher can pre-select which questions from each poster should be discussed, or students choose themselves.
These posters were designed with students and teachers in mind.
