Course Overview

Close reading is a difficult
practice to learn, even for experienced, adult readers. However, as we help our
students approach text through a close reading lens, we will fulfill the
expectations of state standards with all students. Close Reading can be extremely
engaging, productive and confidence-boosting for the struggling reader and the
advanced reader alike. The ability to read complex texts closely, thoughtfully
and carefully is a key to future academic success. Throughout this course,
students will see the practice of close reading as a vehicle to rigorous
analysis of text through asking text-dependent questions, helping students make
thoughtful inferences, and using multiple entry points to help bring students
“inside” the text. Teachers will develop classroom strategies and techniques to
gain optimal student engagement with challenging material. This course will
culminate with the development of a week-long close reading lesson plan. The course is seven weeks in length and requires a minimum of 50 hours.
