Close Reading Strategies


A supplemental guide to Analytical Response to Literature, this guide provides English language arts teachers with strategies that guide students to discover theme, determine tone and tone shifts, anticipate multiple-choice questions, understand how authors vary their sentences. Also, teachers might enjoy the ideas for sustained silent reading, selecting core literature, novel and drama records, and, of course, learning activities that accompany the most popular acronyms, including TP-CASTT, DIDLS, and SOAPSTone.
