Close Reading and our Book Talk

Audrey, Cheryl, Renee, Rebecca, Colleen, and Jo,

Bless you all for making the Book Talk meaningful and worthwhile.  Wow!  Our collective experiences and insights are amazing.

I wanted to share these Prezi projects with you but time was not on our side so I skipped them.  They offer a different slant on What is close reading  and How do we prepare for a close reading?

My take away from today is the work we did with planning for a close read based on the excerpt from Tuck Everlasting.  I only wish I had written down all of the ideas!  I snagged a few.  I love the idea of exploring feelings the words evoke.

Thanks again!!

  1. Thank you so much Jacquie for all you do to help us with our students!! With one of my students, reading for meaning often happens just once sentence at a time!! But these strategies are so helpful, that I know he will grow!! Have a great summer.
