You must be registered to participate!

Close reading is a habit of mind good readers employ when reading complex text. In this webinar, Carol Jago, member-at-large on the ILA Board of Directors, and Nawal Qarooni, founder of NQC Literacy, will demonstrate how modeling the process of close reading with complex visual texts can open otherwise opaque literature for readers. They will introduce participants to the latest high-quality titles in children’s and adolescent literature that are sure to pique students’ interest, explore instructional moves that encourage analytical risk-taking, and demonstrate methods for kindling the love of reading while strengthening reading skills.
