Close reading is woven throughout California's new History-Social Science Framework. Close purposeful reading of primary and secondary source texts helps build student content knowledge and literacy.

In this two-day workshop, participants will engage in discussions, simulations, and strategies that could be immediately applied to their classroom instruction. They will explore close reading classroom examples from the new framework, learn to carefully select appropriate documents and complex texts for close reads, and design high-quality close reading lessons for their specific courses with in-the-moment feedback and coaching.
