Close reading is one of the “deep” literacy strategies that leads to analysis of texts. However, there are varying definitions of what close reading is and just how to get students to actually think. In this workshop, Carrie Rosebrock will explore key components of close reading as she shares ways to effectively create online lessons with close reads.

Carrie Rosebrock, CIESC Professional Learning Specialist, former MS & HS English Teacher, and former Secondary English Administrator for Brownsburg Community School Corporation.
