Comprehension & Close Reading


Learning from texts and remembering or integrating the knowledge from texts is at the heart of our work as literacy educators. Proficient reading requires integrating new knowledge from texts with existing knowledge. The Common Core State Standards place the content of texts as the source for new ideas or challenging existing ones at the heart of reading comprehension. TextProject resources support teachers in understanding evidence-based reading (sometimes referred to as close reading). Resources also include texts that teachers can use with their students as the basis for discussions and close reading.
