5 Tips for Teaching Close Reading (and 5 Things to Watch Out For!)

5 Tips for Teaching Close Reading (and 5 Things to Watch Out For!) | AdLit | Scoop.it

Close reading means starting up close and then pulling back to the larger meaning (words to sentences to full text). Tim Shanahan summarizes it well; he says that close reading “is an intensive analysis of a text in order to come to terms with what it says, how it says it, and what it means.”

Which Reading Skills are Critical to Learn in the Ninth Grade? - Mind/Shift

Which Reading Skills are Critical to Learn in the Ninth Grade? - Mind/Shift | AdLit | Scoop.it
Many freshmen coming into one of Nashville’s top public high schools are competent and fluent readers, but have a hard time reading deeply, making ninth grade a challenging year.

In general, English teacher Emily Moore said, nearly all of the freshmen she teaches at Hume-Fogg Academic High School — a magnet school in downtown Nashville a few blocks from Music City’s famed honky-tonks — have no experience in text analysis.

“They’re all great readers,” she said, noting that nearly 90 percent are reading at grade level. “But I have a hard time getting them to engage with the text, read for understanding and deeper meaning. I have a hard time getting them to read and think and write critically about fiction and nonfiction alike.”

Victor Ventura's curator insight, July 28, 9:10 AM
I commend the collaborative effort of this team of Nashville English Teachers to provide a curriculum that the students needed. This is how it should be: recognize the need, collect and analyze the data and student work, collaboratively  design, explain it to the students(and parents), hold true and have high expectations. Read for yourself.

Cognition and Evolution: Reading Comprehension and Synesthesia

Literacy has strong similarities to synesthesia, and indeed is really a form of learned synesthesia. If you can read, you look at visual marks and automatically, involuntarily experience sound and meaning.
