A central assumption of text-based discussions is that comprehension and learning can occur through dialogue with others.

I read this book for a course on Close Reading. I did not see the connection between the chapters and close reading. The book dealt with an overview of what each genre is but there was no overt connection to how to apply this knowledge (which most teachers already know) to close reading. I did not read the final chapter for class as that would have overwhelmed by technologically-illiterate teachers.
This book was boring and full of information without methods of teaching. It was dreadful. The only reason that I finished it was because it was required reading. Otherwise, I would have abandoned it fast.
Interesting read. Many updated ideas for comprehension instruction. Particularly helpful was the model lesson using hyperlinked text and various other technology skills.
This resource would make for a good book study at the upper elementary to secondary level. The authors make the practice of close reading more concrete and reasonable.
Great resource explaining why we need to teach students to dig deeper into the text. Fisher and Frey also included some simple activities to use in class!
Solid back-to-school reminder of why and how we want our students to read. Good connections to the Common Core.
