Close Reading - Cafe Session 2

We have a full house today of teachers K-12 grade attending the Close Reading session. We are going to focus on: 

  • How to select a balance of texts that prepare students to read challenging fiction and non-fiction at their level
  • How to teach students to read texts above their “comfort zone”
  • Learn to write text-dependent questions for both narrative and expository genres, and how to provide entry-points for all children through visual media, and annotation
  • How to incorporate writing as part of a rigorous close read

The following slide shows the strategies that we will cover today in our session: 


 
In our session, teachers discussed the "close reading" or reading comprehension strategy they currently use in the classroom. We wanted to encourage teachers to collaborate in a professional learning community environment.
