What is 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

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?

what is a close read
What is a Close Read?
  • We are going to do a close read of “Love” by William Maxwell.
  • On the first read, read with pencil in hand.
  • Focus: Main ideas and supporting details
  • Now read again.
  • Focus: Foreshadowing
  • What clues did Maxwell give us that the teacher would die?

A Different Kind of Reading
  • A close reading of text is a rereadingof a small slice of a story (or something that is short to begin with, like a poem or an essay)—perhaps rereading it many times.
  • Then, through careful inspection of words, sentences, paragraphs, and the way they work as parts and together as a whole, the teacher leads the students to discern the author’s meaning. 
  • Students are guidedto provide “textual evidence”that the author’s meaning is what it is. They can’t guess, based only their prior knowledge and a cursory look at the words on the page, what the author intends.  This means, practically, that a Cliff Note’s acquaintanceship with the text won’t cut it.

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.
