Overview

Rigorous Reading: 5 Access Points for Comprehending Complex Texts / Edition 1

What it really means to “read closely”



Call it close reading, call it deep reading, call it analytic reading—call it what you like.

In Rigorous Reading, Nancy Frey and Doug Fisher articulate an instructional plan so clearly, and so squarely built on research, that teachers, schools, and districts need look no further:


  • Purpose & Modeling
  • Close & Scaffolded Reading Instruction
  • Collaborative Conversations
  • An Independent Reading Staircase
  • Performance
