What is it?
The SNAP Close Reading Portfolio was developed to assist teachers
from grades 2-8 in the implementation of the Common Core State

Close Reading is a series of interactive exercises that guides
students in reflecting on the meaning of words and sentences, the
sequence in which these sentences are arranged, and how ideas are
developed over the course of the text.
The SNAP Close Reading Portfolio integrates 3 big ideas into a single product:

  1. the six instructional shifts for ELA
  2. the
    Common Core State Standards for Literature, Informational Text,
    Foundational Skills, Speaking and Listening, Writing, Language
  3. the content for social studies and science at each grade level
What I like about it:
The program is designed to assist teachers in facilitating close reading.  With this goal in mind, the products and the content were created by educators, rather than large book publishers.  The instructors guide is user friendly and simple to put into use and allows teachers to focus on the students.

Similarly, the student materials are engaging and provide subject matter in which learners can take a deep dive into a topic and examine it very closely.  By directing student attention to the relevant text, students are
given practice in how to derive central ideas and find key supporting
points in their reading material.
