Over the last few posts, I have fully covered my first experience with implementing deconstructed close reading into my very humble everyday classroom. 

As long as I followed my specific formula things worked beautifully, and the unbelievable part is I have been teaching this way for the last six years and it is still just as rich and engaging as it was the first month I implemented it. So don’t let the concept of close reading scare you.

Deconstructed close reading can be a beautiful thing and I don’t know of a single educator who has tried it and ever gone back.
