"Today’s writers benefit from an incredible assortment of digital tools from which they can draw inspiration and productivity. Although some writers prefer to stick to old-fashioned pen and paper or even typewriters, there’s a vast population of others that are happy to take advantage of all the new tools out there.

Some of the brightest of these tools can be found on the Apple iPad, and Terry Heick at TeachThought has compiled 16 of them here. Whether students need a place to scribble ideas, organize plotlines, or just find their zen before sitting down to write, these apps have them covered. And you, too."

Shanahan on Literacy: Close Reading with Struggling Adolescents

Shanahan on Literacy: Close Reading with Struggling Adolescents | Common Core Literacy Across the Curriculum | Scoop.it
Dr. Shanahan, I have a question regarding close reading and struggling adolescent readers. What I’ve read about close reading suggests that students should first read the text independently. I’m wondering if this still applies when students are reading significantly below grade level (2-5 years). Is reading the text aloud and modeling thinking (around Key Ideas and Details) during the first read ever appropriate? Thanks in advance for your response!

Close reading: an outcome not a teaching strategy.


The goal is for students to be able to closely read complex texts independently and proficiently.
