Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge Earthquakes - There's a Whole Lotta Shaking Going On - Section 4: Close Read


During the close read, students participate in discourse and questioning by answering text-based questions.  The close read enables us to focus on the three key shifts - use of complex text, citing evidence, and building content knowledge.  The use of a second text following the video as text allows students to integrate information from two texts on the same topic in order to write and speak knowledgeably about the subject of earthquakes.
