Close Reading.
Not in a very long while has a term been freighted with so much responsibility to lead every student to a great future of college and career readiness. Finally, here’s a book that tunes out all of the hubbub and gets down to the business of showing how exactly to "get close reading right."

Chapter by chapter, Nancy Boyles delivers astoundingly practical ideas on how to

  • Connect close reading with other instructional practices
  • Select rich texts and plan for initial close reading lessons
  • Deliver initial and follow-up close reading lessons
  • Coordinate comprehension strategies and close reading

About the Author:

A former classroom teacher and professor of reading, Nancy Boyles is a literacy consultant, who provides workshops, model lessons, and curriculum support to districts and organizations nationally, regionally, and locally. Over the course of her career she has received numerous awards , including New England Reading Association’s Outstanding Literacy Leader Award and Connecticut Reading Association’s Celebrate Literacy Award for exemplary service.

Review:

"Nancy Boyles does a superb job of explaining close reading and when teachers should have students engage with it. Through the wealth of practical teaching ideas she offers herein, she reminds us that reading is purpose driven. . . . The result is that teachers and students alike understand when to read close and, as important, not so close!"

--Michael F. Opitz, Coauthor of Good-bye Round Robin, Updated Edition

"Nancy Boyles' Closer Reading, Grades 3-6, is my new 'go-to' book for sorting through the myths, mystique, uncertainties, and questions surrounding the close reading of complex text and, more importantly, the positioning of readers, writers, learners, and teachers as they navigate close reading within and beyond a standards-based curriculum."

--Jane Wellman-Little, President, New England Reading Association

"It's a comfort knowing that at last there's a book about close reading that honors and respects the needs of teachers in the intermediate grades. You will read, dog ear pages, study the book with team members, and revisit and reread parts on your own. It is a must-have book for your professional library and for professional learning communities!"

--Laura Robb, Author of Unlocking Complex Texts

"This is the book you have been waiting for! With keen insight and explicit attention to detail, Nancy Boyles provides the resources you need, just when you need them. Closer Reading is a 'must have' for all literacy leaders, administrators, and teachers who want to see their students gain a deeper understanding of reading comprehension."--Cathy Mastrianna, President, Connecticut Reading Association

"Nancy's ability to 'sit on your shoulder' as she guides you to understand the real meaning of close reading, choose appropriate text for an authentic purpose, and assess its effectiveness--all while building on our prior knowledge and affirming our passion and commitment to be better teachers--is like no other. . . This outstanding resource is a 'must-have' professional text."

--Barbara E. Mechler, Assistant Superintendent of Schools, New Fairfield, CT

"Dr. Nancy Boyles combines her vast knowledge of literacy, the Common Core Standards, and best practices for students as she guides our understanding of close reading: what it is, what it isn't, and how to embed it into daily instruction. . . . This book is a treasure of knowledge and practical teaching practices that won't collect dust on any shelf."

--Jen Tapia, Director of Professional Development, Aurora Public Schools, IL
