Helping Students Tackle Complex Texts with Close Reading
Addressing different needs of students can make teaching reading a challenging task. Close reading is a powerful instructional strategy to help students interact with complex texts and enhance their reading comprehension. In this webinar, we will examine essential elements of close reading, including multiple reads, annotating and text-dependent questions to help teachers conduct a close read lesson. We will discuss different purposes for each multiple read to help students uncover layers of text meaning and thus gain a deeper understanding. We will also explore how to teach students annotating with a purpose. Annotating strategies can direct students’ attention to key ideas and keep track of their own thoughts. Lastly, we will learn how to use text-dependent questions following each read to engage students in close reading and to evaluate students’ understanding.
