    • Close Reading
    • Close Reading •Close reading requires a lot of REReading! •First, you should read the text in its entirety. •Next, you should aim to understand the main idea or “big picture” of the text. •Break the text down either line by line or by paragraph. •A text can be full of meaning. Each line, each WORD carries a lot of important ideas.
    • Close Reading •A close reading of a passage requires us to dig deep into a text to determine all of the meaning and purpose behind each word. •After doing a close reading you should be able to use your evidence from the text to write a summary of what you read.
    • Non-Fiction Text Features Title- tells you the topic you will be learning about. Heading & Subheading- breaks the text up into small important sections. Bold or Italic Word- helps the readers know the words that are important. Picture or Illustration- gives the reader information visually about the topic. Caption- tells the reader what is happening in the picture. Chart, Graph, Diagram, or Timeline- gives the reader extra information about the text. Map- helps the reader know where something is located in the world.

    • Main Idea •The main idea helps us understand what we are reading about. •The main idea of a paragraph is the point of the passage minus the details. •Good readers always ask themselves “What is this paragraph mostly about?” •The main idea is the BIG Picture. •It is what the author wants us to know and what they are teaching us. •Some information in a paragraph is not important. •All information in a paragraph should connect to the main idea.
