Close-reading strategies help students develop the literacy and critical-thinking skills essential for the rest of their lives. Close Reading in the Secondary Classroom offers high school and middle school educators extensive guidance on how to introduce close-reading strategies to students and help them improve their reading comprehension skills and critical thinking. Learn how to select close-reading examples and passages, elicit deeper question formation, facilitate positive classroom discussion, and assess your students' reading comprehension skills and literacy progress.

Learn how to choose appropriate literary or informational texts for close reading.

Pass on tools necessary for literary analysis and annotating text.

Develop thought-provoking questions and discussion that deepen text analysis and reading comprehension skills.
