A Closer Look at Close Reading

Participants will be able to develop lessons that effectively incorporate close reading techniques, align with NJSLS and NJSLA standards, and are ready to implement in their classrooms.

The Standards for English Language Arts require that each student develops the ability to read a text critically, focusing on specific elements of the text such as author’s purpose, word choice, use of figurative language, and tone. In this workshop, participants will examine the connection between NJSLS, NJSLA, and close reading, develop an understanding of how to ask the kind of text-dependent questions that lead students to closely examine texts, and learn steps to incorporate more close reading into their instruction. The workshop will conclude with participants developing lessons on close reading, based on a shared text.
