Close reading is and outcome, not a technique

Close reading is and outcome, not a technique | Common Core Meiller | Scoop.it

By Tim Shanahan

 

"The trick is to scaffold the readings and re-readings sufficiently to allow these students to participate successfully—they have to do the reading and thinking, you can’t do it for them."


Via Mel Riddile, Janet Gorton
Brook Grove Meiller's insight:

Dr. Shanahan will be in OK on Tuesday.

Les Howard's curator insight, March 19, 2013 7:33 AM

Shanahan makes point that Close Reading is not a technique, rather it is an outcome. I believe that the Four Resources Model (Luke & Freebody) http://www.learningplace.com.au/deliver/content.asp?pid=17768 is a useful lens to develop Close Reading of texts.

Amy Stoeckly's curator insight, March 19, 2013 2:10 PM
