Planning and Facilitating a Close Reading and Writing After a Close Reading (K-12)

There has been much talk about raising the complexity of the texts students are reading. However, rigorous reading isn’t just about the text selection. It’s also about targeting multi-faceted, deep thinking during reading. This session will help teachers plan and facilitate a meaningful close reading in five steps. After reading a complex text, students need to do something with what they learned. More than simply summarizing the text, students need to analyze and even argue the author’s ideas in writing.
