    What is Close Reading?

    Rationale: 
    Close Reading supports comprehension of text and requires students to analyze the author’s intent.  Through Close Reading more complex questions are presented which require the reader to think more critically for deeper meaning of the passage.  Close Reading includes multiple rereads to build upon basic structure and ideas of the text to more text dependent evidence for inferring meaning.
