  3. Close Reading

  4. Helping Students Read Closely • Determining the instructional sequence for close reading is based on three factors: the complexity and richness of the text to be read, the relative skill of the readers, and the tasks to be completed or understandings to be gained. Helping students grapple with complex text involves careful consideration of several factors and should be considered a series of decisions rather than a rigid protocol. The goal of this process is to develop students’ ability to read rich complex text independently and proficiently.

  5. Guide for Close Reading • 1. Read a text – cold, without set-up. • 2. Re-read in chunks. • 3. Paraphrase in writing. • 4. Discuss in own language, aloud, safely. • 5. Read aloud for accessibility. • 6. Identify hard words. Learn word meanings working with a partner. • 7. Re-read several times, using specific prompts which require looking for very specific detail – using the text. • 8. Re-read for specific vocabulary. • 9. Compare/Contrast vocabulary meanings – in writing, and through sharing with a buddy. • 10. Write an essay requiring the student to take a persuasive viewpoint and argue their case for the author’s (motivation, etc.)
