EDA 5011 - Close Reading

(3) Close reading skills are essential for students’ success not just in language arts, but in all content areas. As students navigate both print and digital texts, these skills enable them to be critical consumers of information. A key requirement of the Common Core State Standards, close reading teaches students to examine different aspects of a text over multiple readings. In this course, you will explore the definition, practice, and importance of close reading in the classroom. You’ll develop strategies for modeling close reading to your students, reading fiction and nonfiction, and tackling complex and rigorous texts. In addition, you’ll learn how to apply close reading techniques to visual and digital texts as students take in more and more information online.  Using the tools and techniques from this course, you will be able to teach your students to be lifelong, critical readers who can confidently interpret any type of text they encounter.
