Primary source texts present a challenge for students. In many primary sources, students encounter archaic words, rhetorical devices, unfamiliar context, puzzling references, lengthy sentences, and other difficult elements. And yet, primary sources have raw power and great value. Using close reading instructional routines can help students to get to the heart of primary sources. In this session, we will walk through close reading lessons for a variety of primary source texts. A goal is to help students comprehend the ideas in these texts. A goal is also to give students the tools they can use when they encounter primary sources and other complex texts.
