Text Complexity: Raising Rigor in Reading by Douglas Fisher

To ensure that students learn to read increasingly complex texts, teachers must understand what makes a text hard. This book focuses on the quantitative and qualitative factors of text complexity as well as the ways in which readers can be matched with texts and tasks. Examine how close readings of complex texts scaffold students understanding and allow them to develop the skills necessary to read like a detective.
