Increasing Comprehension with Close Reading in Your Classroom

Graduate Credits
Grade Level

Close reading is a vital literacy skill for meeting Common Core standards that require students to answer text-dependent questions and understand complex texts. This course offers an opportunity to study and practice a powerful literacy framework using six Notice and Note Signposts for fiction. Explore the signposts (text features) to help you forge a deeper connection between your students and the fiction they read. Join the journey that will lead your students to increased engagement, reading comprehension, and productive independent reading through a transformational practice of close reading of fiction. 


This course is part of a Literacy Secondary Learning Pathway/Certificate bundle in partnership with American College of Education and Augustana University. Visit our Certificate page to learn more.
