Close reading is definitely a "survival skill" particularly in a world drowned in information. Close reading is all about reading differently, it is reading for deep understanding through paying attention to what others would normally oversight. Being a close reader entails focus and dedication to your reading material. It empowers readers to delve deeper into the latent meanings of text searching for cues that make the reading  a totally different experience,  one that resembles the detective work. Close reading is also about critical reading, reading that does not take things at face value but rather investigates for what is hidden between the lines.

A few months ago I shared with you here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning a set of interesting posters on close reading and today am adding another wonderful visual created by We Are Teachers. This is a great poster to use with your students in class to help them learn more about the art of close reading.

This visual is available for free download from this page.
