Close Read: Communication and Conflict Resolution Strategies

Fourth graders practice their close reading skills with a short text on conflict resolution. Working in pairs, learners read and reread the article Smart Speak by Marilyn Cram Donahue as they identify the main idea and use context clues to understand challenging vocabulary. The class uses the text to begin making a list of rules to improve their school community, as they work toward the long term goal of writing a school constitution. Consider having students create skits to act out the conflict resolution strategies from the article as an extension activity. This is a great resource for teaching how to read closely, and can very easily be adapted to any piece of writing.

Practicing Reading Closely: Section 1 of the Great Law of Peace (Iroquois Constitution)

The third lesson in a unit study of the Iroquois focuses on developing reading skills. Pupils brainstorm the actions of close readers and record these behaviors on an anchor chart entitled, “Close Readers Do These Things.” Guided by the list, the class begins a close reading of Section 1 of the Great Law of Peace (The Iroquois Constitution). As a unifying activity, learners also add to their anchor chart, “Things to Tell Tim,” started in lesson two. Although part of a complete unit, the close reading approach could be used with any informational text.
