Close & Critical Reading Workshops

Develop independent, lifelong readers

Are your students disengaged with class readings?  Is their comprehension poor, even after they've struggled through it? Close & Critical Reading workshops set students on a path to independent lifelong reading by helping us understand what quality reading instruction really looks like.


In these workshops you will learn how to: 

  • Choose appropriate texts to develop skillful, confident, and engaged readers
  • Learn how the gradual release of responsibility framework helps students become increasingly independent
  • Learn how to effectively implement close reading through the use of well-selected, short, complex passages, repeated readings, annotations, and collaborative conversations shaped by text-dependent questions
  • Formatively assess students based on the artifacts created during reading instruction. Learn how to use this process to engage students and build their confidence as they become increasingly competent and independent.
