"Close reading" refers to a level of understanding that students of any age can achieve with the right kind of instruction. In this webinar, authors Nancy Frey and Doug Fisher share an overview of a research-based instructional plan that teachers, schools, and districts can use to stretch students' capacity to read and comprehend text.

Sharing strategies from their book, Rigorous Reading: Five Access Points for Comprehending Complex Texts, Frey and Fisher will discuss what it really means to "read closely," and will share the five access points toward proficiency.
