Embraces larger themes and ideas evoked and/or implied by the passage itself Close reading is a careful, deliberate reading of a text.
It requires paying close attention to what you are reading and focusing in on the little details and nuances of the text while reading, instead of simply focusing on the face value of the words on the page. Interaction between the Reader and the text
Give text dependent questions that require students to go back into the text and search for the answers
Analyze, Understand, Provide Evidence and Justification Activities
As a critical reader, students should
recognize every assumption as an
argument that must be carefully evaluated.
Claims assert a conclusion, an idea, an
opinion, a judgment, or a point of view
that the writer wants you to know. Activities:
Circle most important word or phrase in a sentence, paragraph, or text
Underline the most important things told about a word or phrase What Does Annotating Text Look Like in the Classroom?
Highlighting, underlining, circling
Marking up the text to identify vocabulary that needs to be taught in advance So What?
