How will reading instruction change when aligned to the Common Core?

How will reading instruction change when aligned to the Common Core? | Oakland County ELA Common Core | Scoop.it

It is exactly this “close reading” that Common Core supporters hope will usher in a new era of reading instruction—one where teachers select grade-appropriate texts for all students; where they have students read and reread those texts—perhaps more times than even makes sense or feels comfortable—to support deep comprehension and analysis; and where they push students to engage in the text itself—in the author’s words, not in how those words make us feel.
