Sarah McElrath's comment, April 3, 2013 12:17 PM
Whether you have students go through and highlight isn't as important as the idea of going through a text multiple times and looking for different things. Some of the steps looked at the word choice, but some of the steps looked for themes and connections. All of that plays a part in what makes a text work--or not. Plus, note the last step which says, "now you are ready to discuss the text." So I think students and teachers can still get to the "contrast of darkness and spirit" or any other point that seems important. And would teachers do this on all texts? No, probably not. But if you started by having students practice going through and looking for different things, eventually they may gain the mindset that deep reading includes multiple readings, looking at different aspects of that text. And for younger students -- concrete is good. Start with the concrete and move to the higher level thinking.
Carol Geddis's curator insight, April 11, 2013 11:31 AM

A good model for one way of doing close reading, though some kids may get "highlighter happy".

Teresa Carvalho's curator insight, October 17, 2013 9:13 PM

A really user-friendly guide to use in our classes. We can use short, interesting and meaningful texts for that purpose.
