Transcript of Close Reading Questions

Reading Literature for Depth and Understanding
First/Second Reading Questions
These types of questions will not require you to read the text necessarily. They will ask about something you may know already, or information connected to the work you are about to read.
Third/Fourth Reading Questions
Significance Questions
Fifth?/Subsequent Reading Questions
To read literature with precision and focus
Prior Knowledge
Questions about the text that one can answer just from reading 1-2 times.
These questions will require you to go back to the text for a 3rd or 4th time in order to determine a significant moment, or line from the text. YOU WILL BE EXPECTED TO CITE EVIDENCE IN THESE QUESTIONS, AND SUPPORT YOUR THOUGHTS LOGICALLY. There will not be one correct answer.
Interpretive Questions
Interpretive questions will require you to go back to the text again for a question that is up to your interpretation. There will not be one correct answer. More open-ended.
An analysis question will be the most challenging of all of these questions because they will require you to look at the text again, and use a great deal of deep thinking. You will possibly have to look to your other answers/previous readings in order to effectively answer this type of question.
These questions will not require you to read the text. Instead, they will ask you about the thinking you used to arrive upon an answer. "Metacognition"
To become a better thinker
To become a better arguer
