Description of Amplify Close Read

Close reading is a notoriously hard skill to learn, yet it is essential for school and life. Fortunately, we know that great storytelling can capture students’ imaginations, which is why Amplify Close Reading — a digital graphic novel adventure for grades 6–8 — engages students in a suspenseful story while developing their close reading skills. Titled “The Last Readers,” the novel is set in a dystopian future world run by machines that tell people what they can and can’t read. Recruited for the rebellion, students are trained in the powerful ways authors convey meaning and affect their audience.
