Understanding the Role of a Close Reader

Understanding the Role of a Close Reader | Trends, Thoughts, and Ideas For the Classroom | Scoop.it
What exactly is close reading and how do we ensure students are processing the information they are reading? In the book A Close Look at Close Reading: Teaching Students to Analyze Complex Texts, Grades K–5, literacy experts Diane Lapp, Barbara Moss, Maria Grant, and Kelly Johnson answer these questions and more as they explain how to make close reading a habit of practice. With the Common Core State Standards placing emphasis on close reading, educators are looking for ways to teach students how to analyze informational and literary text. However, it’s important for both teachers and students to understand the close-reading process and the different roles a reader can take to think deeply about a complex text. The following excerpt discusses a reader’s role in the closing-reading process and how students must engage in four major reading practices to become proficient readers. Want to read more about close reading? Read the first chapter of A Close Look at Close Reading here or pick up a copy in print or e-book format in the ASCD Online Store.
