Transcript

  • 1. A special kind of analytic reading that involves: Bringing the text and the reader “closer together” Reading for more than just the plot Looking for more than one layer of meaning Recognizing emotional overtones that word choice, images, details create in the text (ex. starving vs. famished vs. hungry)
  • 2.  Connect textual information + prior experiences = expand schema. Build necessary habits + engage with difficult text = persistence and stamina. Create meaning + interact with text = deeper understanding of what they are reading This can be done by reading “more closely”
  • 3.  http://www.engageny.org/resource/close- reading-strategies-with-informational-text- by-expeditionary-learning What do you notice is similar or different to what happens in your own classroom?
  • 4.  Approaching the text as an Active reader vs. a Passive reader Each student has a copy of the text First read through for the FLOW Second read ready to Stop and Jot Writing in margins…The Gist Being slow, thoughtful, and purposeful Bringing prior experiences, word knowledge to the text Asking questions, making informed judgments, breaking the text apart Coming together as a group to share out
  • 5.  Provide students with a text. Begin by reading aloud or allowing readers to “have a go” with the text. Provide information on background and vocabulary that are essential for understanding and that can not be determined within the text. Have students read text twice Students will respond on the text. Wrap it up…sharing thoughts and “Gist Statement”
