Teaching Close Reading: What You Need to Know

Teaching Close Reading: What You Need to Know | Common Core for 4th grade | Scoop.it
As a teacher, the Common Core State Standards can be a lot to get your mind around. When you take a closer look at the ELA standards, however, it’s clear that the main goal is to get kids to engage with what they’re reading on a deeper level: to ask questions about what they notice, and to answer those questions based on what’s in the text. Another term for this strategy is close reading.

Math and Inquiry: The Importance of Letting Students Stumble | Common Core for 4th grade | Scoop.it
For subjects like math and foreign language, which are traditionally taught in a linear and highly structured context, using more open-ended inquiry-based models can be challenging. But inquiry learning is based on the premise that, with a little bit of structure and guidance, teachers can support students to ask questions that lead them to learn those same important skills -- in ways that are meaningful to them.
