Para garantir que os alunos tenham habilidades e competências para aprender textos, os professores precisam mais do que padrões: precisam saber como selecionar esses textos e oportunizar experiências que contribuam para isso. Precisam também entender como as estruturas e os objetivos desses textos contribuem de maneira essencial para criar e comunicar significados. Este livro aborda essas questões. Seu tema subjacente é a complexidade dos textos informativos, oferecendo subsídios para que o uso desse tipo de texto seja explorado de forma produtiva na (re)construção de aprendizagens.
This essential book provides a roadmap for instruction and assessment of close reading skills in grades 3-8. To engage deeply with informational texts--a key requirement of the Common Core standards--students need to determine what details are important, how they fit together to convey a central idea, and how to synthesize information from multiple sources. They also need to understand the unique demands of different text features and structures. Presenting effective instructional strategies that teachers can tailor to their own classrooms, the book includes lesson plans, vignettes, and examples of student work, plus a Study Guide with professional learning activities and discussion questions.
To acquire content knowledge through reading, students must understand the complex components and diverse purposes of informational texts, as emphasized in the Common Core State Standards (CCSS).

Classroom-tested instructional recommendations and "kid-friendly" explanations guide teachers in helping students to identify and understand the role of these elements in different types of informational texts. Numerous student work samples, excerpts from exemplary books and articles, and a Study Guide with discussion questions and activities for professional learning add to the book’s utility.
