University of Nevada Reno professor Dr. Steven Gerhke will be leading an inservice course on close reading and poetry this fall. Kindergarten through sixth grade teachers can take part in the class and learn more about performing close readings of poetry and other literature. The class will provide a clear roadmap for close textual analysis. Specifically, participants will look at the way analyzing specific components in literature can help to reveal the themes in a work. This method will aid in creating intelligent and lively discussions in the classroom.
