Tennessee has created a Guide to Close Reading that answers the following questions:
- What is close reading?
- Why is close reading important?
- How is close reading done?
The guide answers these questions with explicit links to the standards, assessment, and lifelong literacy.
NOTE: many of the answers outlined in the Guide to Close Reading are a perfect complement to the inservice course UNR professor Dr. Steven Gehrke did with our K-6 ELA community. You can review the PowerPoint he shared here.
