Keys to Close Reading

with Joan Sedita

Come spend the day collaborating with colleagues..

The Common Core literacy standards emphasize the use of challenging text at all grade levels and for teaching students close and careful reading strategies in order to gain critical thinking skills.

This session will present a close reading routine that teachers can use with short, challenging text passages to practice close reading skills. Participants will learn how to use think-aloud, insert text-focused questions that students answer while they read, and how to teach students to annotate and identify key ideas and

supporting details while reading.

Meet the presenter!
