Bailey’s Meta-Textual Markers– Dr. Bailey has identified specific roles or claim 1 targets for five neon colored highlighters, with their tasks imprinted on each that correspond to the procedures outlined in the CLOSE Reading Strategy placemat. The colors and tasks/targets are as follows; yellow-vocabulary, orange– key details, green– text features, pink– text organization and blue-author’s craft. When conducting a close read of text, students use these meta-textual markers to identify and highlight attributes of complex text. This tool provides an excellent strategy for building capacity in students to conduct a close read of and cite evidence from text.
Common Core Placemats: Dr. Bailey has developed a series of educational placemats to support teacher and student knowledge of attributes of complex text; academic vocabulary and structural analysis; roots and affixes, text structures and the CLOSE Reading Process.
