Close Reading

Monday, Jul 16, 2018 @ 9:00 AM - Friday, Jul 20, 2018 @ 12:00 PM
Become a confident, thoughtful, and independent close reader who knows how to dig deep into a text. Read a variety of texts ranging from the lyrics of top 40 hits to the poetry of Nobel prize winners to discover what’s going on between the lines. What does the band One Direction mean in "The Story of My Life,” or what does Elsa mean when she sings "Let it Go?". In this camp we will unlock the power of making valid inferences and apply our detail oriented analysis to works of fiction, nonfiction and visual texts. The curriculum for this camp is based on the findings of Kate Roberts and Christopher Lehmen and their text, Falling in Love with Close Reading: Lessons for Analyzing Texts--and Life
