Common Core and ELLs Blog: By Dr. Diane Staehr Fenner

Part II of the series on informational text will first provide an overview of what close reading is and could mean for ELLs, including some definitions of close reading. Then I’ll present the role of background knowledge, which is a major consideration with teaching ELLs close reading, and share some recommended resources.

When I finish reading a story, I always say, "Colorín, Colorado," and the children finish the saying for me, "Este cuento se ha acabado." Great work. Please keep it up!
