Close Reading in the 3-12 SEI Classroom
This Phase II training will address the Instructional Shifts in ELA that will impact the instruction for English language learners. The workshop will use modeling and various activities to demonstrate a close reading routine teachers can use with students to help them become independent readers and thinkers about text. In addition to the reading routine, participants will learn how to select texts appropriate for close reading and write text dependent questions. Participants will also learn methodologies to support classroom discussion and writing about text. The workshop will focus on the research of Fillmore and Kinsella in addition to The Thinkerís Guide to How to Read a Paragraph - The Art of Close Reading by Paul and Elder and Text Complexity: Raising Rigor in Reading by Fisher, Frey and Lapp.
