Close Reading

“Close Reading – an intensive analysis of a text in order to come to terms with what it says, how it says it, and what it means.”

Tim Shanahan

Anchor Standards for Reading

R.1: Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it; cite specific textual evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text.

slide6

“Deep reading,” or slow reading, is a sophisticated process in which people can critically think, reflect, and understand the words they are looking at. With most, that means slowing down – even stopping and rereading a page or paragraph if it doesn’t sink in – to really capture what the author is trying to say. Experts warn that without reading and really understanding what’s being said, it is impossible to be an educated citizen of the world, a knowledgeable voter or even an imaginative thinker.

how to do a close reading
How To Do a Close Reading
  • Read with a pencil in hand; annotate the text. Mark the big ideas and skills.
  • Reread to look for patterns in the things you’ve noticed about the text – repetitions, contradictions, similarities. Find the commonalities.
  • Ask and/or answer questions about the patterns you’ve noticed – how and why are these patterns important to the overall text?

A Close Reading of a Subcategory of Standards – Grade 9: Key Ideas & Details

1, 2, 3

Students will be able to read a text and analyze it and its characters using explicit textual evidence and making inference.s

Students need to be able to justify their opinions using evidence. They need techniques for analyzing the meaning of text, opportunities to discuss and determine relevant evidence. I need to require justifications using evidence both explicitly and inferentially. I need to pose questions to establish the relevant task.

Anchor Standards for Reading Literature

Subcategories:

  • Craft and Structure
  • Integration of Knowledge and Ideas

CCR Anchor Standard 1

"Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it; cite specific textual evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text."

Close Reading of Charlotte’s Web

CCR Anchor Standard 2

"Determine central ideas or themes of a text and analyze their development; summarize the key supporting details and ideas.“

CCR Anchor Standard 3

"Analyze how and why individuals, events, and ideas develop and interact over the course of a text.“

What’s the story beginning to be about?

What in the story makes you say that?

a final thought
A final thought….

“If young readers do the work of the first three anchor standards well— comprehending, inferring, synthesizing —then they’ll move rapidly up levels to the kinds of stories where paying attention to craft, structure, and language will become an essential part of their everyday reading work.”

-Calkins, Ehrenworth, & Lehman, 2012

text complexity

Text Complexity

“Text complexity is the hallmark of the Common Core State Standards.”
