Improve Reading with Complex Texts
Fisher, Douglas; Frey, Nancy
Phi Delta Kappan, v96 n5 p56-61 Feb 2015
The Common Core State Standards have cast a renewed light on reading instruction, presenting teachers with the new requirements to teach close reading of complex texts. Teachers and administrators should consider a number of essential features of close reading: They are short, complex texts; rich discussions based on worthy questions; revisiting and annotating the text; and being inspired by the text. Educators should consider these the look-fors that deepen students' interactions with text.
