This 11-page presentation makes possible a simple introduction to close reading, or annotating literature, using an acronym that reminds students of the various ways we interact with a text. By outlining the various letters' meanings, e.g. "P" = "Predict what might happen now," we define these active reading actions. English Teachers' Gold lists this and many other resources for helping students develop as readers, writers, and thinkers. More than ever before, we need a systematic way to help students actively think while reading. This method makes that second nature.
