Follow up Chat: “Falling in Love with Close Reading”


It’s hard to believe that it has almost been a month since we had an online Twitter chat about Kate Roberts and Chris Lehman’s book, Falling in Love with Close Reading. Join us (Allison Jackson @azajacks and Laura Komos @laurakomos) tomorrow night for a follow up chat from 6:30-7:30 pm EST under the #FILWCloseReading hashtag.

Haven’t read the book?

A sample is available here: http://heinemann.sites.hubspot.com/falling-in-love-with-close-reading-sample

Wonder what we will chat about?

The questions for our chat are available here:  goo.gl/yIkmQG

Will @teachkate and @ichrislehman be joining the chat?

Not on 12/9/2013 – They are speaking about their book all day long in New York!

Is Close Reading killing the love of reading for you and your students?

Then you really need to be on Twitter (tweetchat or tweetdeck) to follow #FILWCloseReading Monday, 12/9/13 to listen to a “different view” of close reading that will excite you and your students! We will be looking forward to seeing you!
