Close Reading

What is it?

Definition

Close reading is what a reader annotates a text. Annotation is when you write on a text. Close reading involves looking for specific ideas in a piece of writing. In our class, I will often tell you what to look for. However, by the end of the year you will be expected to complete close readings using annotations without my assistance.

Close Reading

What is it?

Close Reading is the act of reading a text closely. You will look at smaller parts of a text very closely. We will take all of these small parts, their interpretations, and our ideas and use them to understand the text as a whole.
