Many teachers struggle with how to design instruction that supports students' in close reading—and when to deliver such instruction in a packed school day. Lapp and her colleagues provide a step-by-step lesson structure that relies on tiered-text sets. You'll learn how to model a deep text reading, encourage group conversations to analyze text-based information, then support students through multiple opportunities with increasingly challenging texts. Tiered-text set instruction can help you stretch your students' thinking and increase their engagement with texts, and it can give you a clearer picture of what each student needs, in terms of direct instruction or support.
