A Primer on “Close Reading of a Text”

This week the Aspen Institute published “Implementing the Common Core State Standards: A Primer on ‘Close Reading of Text’” (here). Coauthored by Sheila Brown and Lee Kappes, the primer defines close reading, provides strategies for its implementation, and connects this instructional approach to the standards. Washoe educators Loree Gerboth and Corrin Cathcart are quoted in the article and connect the theoretical frame to real classroom application. (Note: Dr. Timothy Shanahan cautions that close reading is not a reading strategy that kids simply apply. It is an instructional approach.)
