Close, careful reading of complex texts supported by well-designed text dependent questions is a key component of teaching to the Common Core Standards.  This recorded Web seminar considers ways that thoughtful formative assessment can ensure that students are adequately supported in close reading, without removing the productive struggle of working with challenging texts.  Scott explores questions such as

  • How do I know if this is an appropriate text for close reading?
  • How can I differentiate the close reading experience for diverse learners?
  • How do I know if close reading "went well"?
