What is "Close" Reading?

What is "Close" Reading? | Literacy In The Middle School | Scoop.it
Close reading is the idea that students will re-read certain texts in order 

Close reading is purposefully reading a text while paying attention to the author’s word choice, sentence structure, and devices used to embed layers of meaning within. It involves reading the same text multiple times, each time studying a different aspect to encourage the reader to analyze what and why the author did what he did to communicate the point.

Close reading is when someone mostly students reread text to better understand it. Although this is a very straight forward topic tis article suggests that each time oyu read the text oyu search for differnt things so you can better understand what the autor is trying to say.

Judy Beemer's curator insight, October 18, 2013 11:01 AM

The questions to ask when doing a second reading are especially helpful.

This is my favorite online book shelf.  I have  tried others such as Good Reads and Library thing.  I like it for its ease of use and the fact that it is free!  Amazon.com aquired it after I started using, but I haven't noticed a difference in the services.  Make sure to have a parent premission slip signed if your students are under the age of 13.
