I have read the article 'What does the Text Mean' and found some interesting points. Other articles from Reading Teacher are worthwhile in defining what is necessary for learning through 'close reading'. The article names are 'Close Reading in Elementary Schools' by Fisher and Frey; 'Close Reading Tool Kit', 'Realizing the Promise of Open-Ended Questions' by Wasik and Hindman. I found these articles very worthwhile and want to thank a close friend, Myra, for recommending them to me also.

Notice and Note, by Kyleen Beers and Falling in Love with Close Reading, by Kate Roberts and Chris Lehman are fantastic!
my 2th grade i do class dojo
Yes, notice & note is great!
Thank you for everyone who tried to help by answering my question. I really don't know where to write comments so I am writing them here. Sandra Pizaro, you gave me easy accessible documents that I can read directly. I was able to get the first one by Fisher but the other two, " Close Reading Tool Kit" and "Realizing the promise of Open- Ended Questions" by Wasik and Hindman, are hard to find. Would you please send me the other atricles , if they are available, via my e-mail: email@example.com
Thank you all..!

if someone does share the articles, I would love them too! Thank you! firstname.lastname@example.org

Closer Reading, Grades 3-6 by Nancy Boyles is good too:)
Notice and Note is great, and then if you want to dig really deeply into the topic, check out Mortimer Adler's classic How to Read a Book (rev. 1972). He was a founder of the Great Books Foundation (GBF), and the principles he lays out in that book are also incorporated in the professional learning materials and programs available from GBF (www.greatbooks.org). The Shared Inquiry method of learning overall, and the specific process for doing multiple readings while raising questions and taking notes all help create a powerfully engaging context for meaningful close reading.
