Transcript of CLOSE READ

CLOSE READ
Informational
there are 5 steps
STEP ONE:
Number the paragraphs of the piece and “chunk” them together
based on structure.
STEP TWO:
Look through the structure of the piece (title, headings, graphs).
Think of and note any questions you have or information you
already know about this topic.
STEP THREE:
Read and annotate as you go according to the following guidelines:
Circle/Highlight
key terms- vocabulary you do not know,
repeated words or phrases. Do not go overboard, not every word is
a key term.
Underline/Highlight
claims or specific facts you would like to
reference in your analysis.

STEP THREE CONTINUED:
Left Margin
Summarize each “chunk”. You should be able to do
this in about 10 words. (In StudySync, Add an Annotation)
Right Margin
Pose questions (things you are confused about OR
thick questions), draw a visual representation of the information,
“think aloud” about what the author is getting at or trying to
accomplish. (In StudySync, Add an Annotation)
STEP FOUR:
Gather information from others. Work in a group, add
to your notes during your teacher’s reading and class discussion.

Fictional and Narrative

STEP ONE:
Number the paragraphs of the piece and “chunk” them together
based on structure.
STEP FIVE:
Do a “quick write analysis”. Think about the following aspects of the
piece and do a quick 1-2 sentence write-up for each. Be prepared
to go back to your notes and to the text.
STEP FIVE CONTINUED:
Main Idea
- What was the purpose/conclusion of the piece?
Central Idea(s

Structure -
Does the author structure the information in a specific way? For what reason?
Relevance-
Why was this piece written, why do we care?
Point of View- Is the author trust-worthy? What is his or her bias?
BE PREPARED TO CITE EVIDENCE FROM THE TEXT TO SUPPORT ALL
ANALYSIS
FICTIONAL AND NARRATIVE
READINGS
STEP ONE:
If appropriate, number paragraphs and “chunks”. Be aware that in
fiction, information may already be divided into sections and this
step is unnecessary.
STEP TWO:
Look through the structure of the piece (title, chapter names,
illustrations). Think of and note questions or predictions you might have about the outcome of the piece.
STEP THREE:
Read and annotate as you go according to the following guidelines:
Circle/Highlight
powerful words, phrases, or pieces of dialogue anywhere
in the story you feel a “big moment” is happening.
Underline/Highlight
any story element (character traits,
obstacles, foreshadowing, flashback, climax, resolution, etc).

STEP FOUR:
Gather information from others. Work in a group, add
to your notes during your teacher’s reading and class discussion.
STEP FIVE:
Do a “quick write analysis”. Think about the following aspects of the
piece and do a quick 1-2 sentence write-up for each. Be prepared
to go back to your notes and to the text.
STEP THREE CONTINUED:
Left Margin
Summarize each “chunk” or page. You should be
able to do this in about 10 words.
(In StudySync, Add an Annotation)
Right Margin
Pose questions (things you are confused about OR
discussion questions), draw a visual representation of the

trying to accomplish. Make predictions about what will happen next.
(In StudySync, Add an Annotation)
