From:   INFOhio: EBSCOhost Professional Development Collection

The article discusses teaching close reading skills to elementary students through the U.S. Common Core State Standards, which are then assessed through the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) testing program. Abstract thinking, literary analysis, and reading comprehension are discussed, and the reading framework developed by the U.S. National Assessment of Educational Progress project is described. Methods for teaching elementary students about concepts such as metaphor, sentence structure, and word choice are also discussed.
