B-2 How to Foster World-Readiness Through Close Reading


Text Choice

Using Authentic Resources

Focus on the Lesson


Guided Instruction 

  • Moma (View, view with a purpose, confirm predictions, small group work with other murals, socratic seminar, performance assessment)


Collaborative Learning 


Annotate Images-Thinglink


Independent Practice

  1. Use an infographic listed below, do a search for an infographic for a topic you teach, or create an infographic using one of the creators listed below.
  2. Write a purpose & "text dependent" questions you could use to help students closely read this graphic/infographic. (This is not just a comprehension check.) 
    • Identify evidence that supports the answers. Students should analyze, not just locate and repeat to answer your questions. 


Create Your Own Close Reading Task 

(Common question words/phrases for text dependent questions: How..., Why..., What can we infer & where is the evidence, What's the effect of..., comparison questions)

Lectura: ¿Cómo es el cuy?

Infográfico: Animales de Perú

Infográfico: El pequeño gigante

Sito Web: http://cuymagico.pe 


Option 1: Create or find an Infographic and create text dependent questions for it.

Option 2: Create or remix a Thinglink preparing questions that get students thinking more deeply about the language or culture they are learning.
