10H – 10 October 2014 – Close Reading

Today we were supposed to have a reading day, but it occurred to me that we need some practice on close reading. So we did a Close Reading Activity (re: ASP Ch 4-5) together in class.

Your job for Monday is to read Chapters 6 & 7.

In your journal, you have two choices:

  1. If the question writing/answering is working for you, go for it. Write three questions, answer one.
  2. If it’s not working for you, try this instead: read as if you’re looking for passages you could do a close reading on. Whenever you find one, flag it. Then, in your journal entry, perform a close reading/analysis 1-2 of the passages you flagged.
