Common Core & Close Reading: An Outcome not a Reading Strategy

Common Core & Close Reading: An Outcome not a Reading Strategy | common core literacy | Scoop.it

Seems like everywhere I go, educators are asking “What is this ‘close reading’ thing and how do I teach it?” The buzz on close reading has become so great that many think close reading is simply another strategy to be taught. If so, there must be a graphic organizer or rubric to employ allowing the close reading box to be ✓ed off the instructional pacing chart.


In the haste of the buzz, many do not understand that close reading is not a simple one-step technique to be taught but the outcome of applying knowledge of language structures and conventions in the analysis of a text in order to discern a subtle message, or understand a complex concept, or to evaluate text efficacy. If you can accept that as a fallible working definition, then you may begin to see that not all texts have the depth to demand close reading nor can it be possible to develop a checklist of practice in conducting a close reading.
