How Close Is Close Reading?
Saccomano, Doreen
Texas Journal of Literacy Education, v2 n2 p140-147 Win 2014
Close Reading is a strategy that can be used when reading challenging text. This strategy requires teachers to provide scaffolding, and create opportunities for think-alouds and rereading of text in order to help students become active readers who focus on finding text-based support for their answers. In addition, teachers must also be aware of the risks as well as the benefits of using Close Reading to make wise instructional decisions.
