  • fisher visual for close read
    A close reading is a careful and purposeful reading. Well actually, it’s rereading. It’s a careful and purposeful rereading of a text. It’s an encounter with the text where students really focus on what the author had to say, what the author’s purpose was, what the words mean, and what the structure of the text tells us.  Close reading requires that students actually think and understand what they are reading. - Dr. Douglas Fisher
