Boost Close Reading, also known as The Last Readers, is designed for students to work independently as they progress through the chapters. It is flexible and can be incorporated into the curriculum in various ways.
The most popular implementation is to have students work on the program two to three times per week for 20–30 minutes at a time. Some educators assign the program 1 day a week for 45 minutes, while others assign it every day for 15 minutes. The way you choose to use the program with your students is up to you.
Note: On average, each chapter takes students roughly 1 hour to complete.
