1 Close Reading Modeling Method: Example Tasks for K-5 Created by Content Area Specialists for Illinois State Board of Education Hosted by Jill Brown English Language Arts

2 Objectives Discuss Text Complexity Model Expand knowledge of reader and task considerations Define Close Reading

3 Text Complexity Text complexity is defined by: Qualitative Qualitative measures – levels of meaning, structure, language conventionality and clarity, and knowledge demands often best measured by an attentive human reader. Quantitative Quantitative measures – readability and other scores of text complexity often best measured by computer software. Reader and Task Reader and Task considerations – background knowledge of reader, motivation, interests, and complexity generated by tasks assigned often best made by educators employing their professional judgment. (Common Core State Standards Initiative) 3

4 Step 3: Reader and Task Considerations such as: Motivation Knowledge and experience Purpose for reading Complexity of task assigned regarding text Complexity of questions asked regarding text (Common Core State Standards Initiative) 4

5 What is Close Reading? Close analysis of texts with evidence should verify claims and conclusions. Reading shorter chunks of texts with close attention. Rereading and looking for evidence to support conclusions drawn from the text is critical to becoming an effective reader.

9 Bud, Not Buddy by Christopher Paul Curtis Here we go again. We were all standing in line waiting for breakfast when one of the caseworkers came in and tap-tap-tapped down the line. Uh-oh, this meant bad news, either theyd found a foster home for somebody or somebody was about to get paddled. All the kids watched the woman as she moved along the line, her high- heeled shoes sounding like little firecrackers going off on the wooden floor. Shoot! She stopped at me and said, Are you Buddy Caldwell? I said, Its Bud, not Buddy, maam. She put her hand on my shoulder and took me out of the line. Then she pulled Jerry, one of the littler boys, over. Arent you Jerry Clark? He nodded. Boys, good news! Now that the school year has ended, you both have been accepted in new temporary-care homes starting this afternoon!

10 Jerry asked the same thing I was thinking, Together? She said, Why no, Jerry, youll be in a family with three little girls… Jerry looked like hed just found out they were going to dip him in a pot of boiling milk. …and Bud.. She looked at some papers she was holding. Oh, yes, the Amoses, youll be with Mr. and Mrs. Amos and their son, whos twelve years old, that makes him just two years older than you, doesnt it, Bud? Yes, maam. She said, Im sure youll both be very happy. Me and Jerry looked at each other. Bud, Not Buddy by Christopher Paul Curtis

11 The woman said, Now, now, boys, no need to look so glum. I know you don't understand what it means, but theres a depression going on all over this country. People cant find jobs and these are very, very difficult times for everybody. Weve been lucky enough to find two wonderful families whove opened their doors for you. I think its best that we show our new foster families that were very… She dragged out the word very, waiting for us to finish her sentence for her. Jerry said, Cheerful, helpful and grateful. I moved my lips and mumbled. She smiled and said, Unfortunately, you wont have time for breakfast. Ill have a couple of pieces of fruit put in a bag. In the meantime go to the sleep room and strip your beds and gather all of your things. Bud, Not Buddy by Christopher Paul Curtis

12 Here we go again. I felt like I was walking in my sleep as I followed Jerry back to the room where all the boys beds were jim-jammed together. This was the third foster home I was going to and Im used to packing up and leaving, but it still surprises me that there are always a few seconds, right after they tell you youve got to go, when my nose gets all runny and my throat gets all choky and my eyes get all sting-y. But the tears coming out doesnt happen to me anymore, I dont know when it first happened, but it seems like my eyes dont cry anymore. Bud, Not Buddy by Christopher Paul Curtis

13 What to do next Teacher collects coded texts and looks for patterns of coding. Select vocabulary from the class that proved difficult. Attach media that will define terms. Choose other topics to provide instruction on from Craft and Structure portion of CCSS.

27 Close Reading Process Students and teachers understand multiple reads will occur – Independently – By proficient readers including teacher Vocabulary instruction with a focus on Tier 2 words Questions will follow Common Core Standards structure

28 Sample Process for Literature Key Ideas and Details State what the text says explicitly and support it with evidence. Identify the central idea and theme(s). Analyze characters and events. Craft and Structure Interpret words and phrases. Analyze structures of text and how styles relate. Discuss purposes and points of view. Integration of Knowledge and Ideas Evaluate the different medias. Compare and contrast the different cultural experiences and themes.
