Readers, Close Readers, Friends, Followers,
For my post honoring a full year of blogging, it is my pleasure to announce a Twitter Chat for Falling in Love with Close Reading Lessons for Analyzing Texts and Life to be held on Monday, November 11, 2013 from 6-7 pm EST (some of us work on Veteran’s Day 😦 ).
The authors @ichrislehman and @teachkate will be joining us for that chat!
Our hashtag will be #FILWCloseReading.
What can you do during the next two weeks in order to “get ready” for the chat?
To prepare for the chat:
Read the book: Falling in Love with Close Reading Lessons for Analyzing Texts – and Life
Don’t have the book? Read a sample from the book available here at Heinemann.
- Continue Learning!
We will be talking about the “ritual” for teaching close reading that is the result of “loving the author’s craft” not a “must-do, lock-step procedure” that spans days of instruction for a two page story!
