Attending to the information presented in the text, while recognizing assumptions, background knowledge, and biases held by the reader, helps the reader deeply understand what is being read. Close reading is an instructional approach that teaches students to engage in all of these behaviors. As part of close reading, students encounter a text and read that text several times, often for different purposes and based on different questions. As part of close reading, teachers and students ask questions of the text. Some questions can be answered without having read the text; others require a deeper understanding and evidence from the text. In this session, we focus on questions that require repeated close readings in order to be answered. These questions include general understandings, key details, vocabulary and text structure, author's purpose, inferences, and opinions and arguments.

 

Participants will:

  • Identify the major components of close reading
  • Describe the differences between close reading in elementary and secondary schools
  • Differentiate between questions that do, and do not, require evidence from the text
