Educon Session 1: The Closer Citizen-Linking Close Reading to a Careful Analysis Of Media and Our Lives

One of the goals of our eLearning2 professional development is to help staff develop skills to assist students in reading digital content more deeply. 
This session at Educon 2.5 titled:  The Closer Citizen-Linking Close Reading to a Careful Analysis Of Media and Our Lives by Chris Lehman and Kate Roberts from The Teacher's College at Columbia University contains ideas not just on text, but on media as well. Worth a look!




Their video examples didn't show up as well on the tape, so I have included them below:

When doing close reading regardless of medium, we need to look at purpose-what evidence should we pull out first, then develop ideas based on that.
At the end, they invited participants to think about the feedback cycle :
What content was being used during their presentation?
What methods did they use?
What manner did they use. You can add your own thoughts here.
