I'm trying to make sense out of Fisher's and Shanahan's ideas on Close Reading and was wondering if I could see what you thought about this topic.

I've read so many different definitions of close reading from many respectable sources! They all basically can be summarized to be that close reading is good reading! It means reading with a purpose, rereading, thinking about the text, evaluating the text, etc.

I feel like all this stuff makes everything so much more confusing. We throw out all these terms that mean the same thing. I feel like "close reading" is the latest buzz word.

Been trying to get an understanding of just what close reading is. I was thinking the same thing.

Our district is really pushing it for lower grades as a way to get our reading scores up. we have had some training on it and they just confuse us. Don't think they really understand it. The idea is great but how can some students close read when they can't even read the words? It is great for those who can actually read and comprehend.

Check out Pinterest. There are some nice anchor charts and some videos of the Close Reading in action in the classroom on there. It really isn't anything that different than what we do everyday; it's just more use, more in-depth use, of a text selection.

If you happen to not find the videos, let me know and I can attach my pin of what I have.

How does Close Reading tie into the idea of Reading Ability and Readability if that makes any sense?
