Students from Kerry Meehan's third-grade class at World of Inquiry School #58 in Rochester, NY, experience a close reading lesson from an Expeditionary Learning ELA curriculum module (G3:M2A:U1:L2). Meehan guides students through the close reading process, checks for understanding, and leverages the power of student talk and collaboration to help them make meaning of a complex text. This is a longer annotated version of the shorter video (Close Reading: An Instructional Strategy for Conquering Complex Text). It highlights each instructional move and its impact on student learning. This video is useful to those new to close reading as an instructional practice and for those interested in the rationale behind the lesson design.
