Close Reading is a central focus of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Students learn to immerse themselves in the text, think about what the author is saying, and pick out important details in the text in a methodical way.
I really appreciate your purchase, and I hope your students enjoy the stories! Have a great return to school and a wonderful fall season!
