Full course description
To gain the literacy skills needed for success in college and in the workforce, students must systematically analyze text. Students read, annotate, and reread text when engaging in this type of analysis. In recent Educational Leadership articles, Nancy Boyles (2012), Nancy Frey, and Douglas Fisher (2013) recommend close reading to help students increase their interest in and comprehension of text. In this module, you will learn to select texts/passages worthy of close reads, write text-dependent questions, lead students in a close reading of a text, and support them as they write about reading using strong evidence.
