Abstract

In this paper, I draw attention to a lively and accessible way of helping academics to make sense of their practice as teachers. First, I define 'collaborative close reading' and 'teaching texts'. Then I invite the reader to eavesdrop on three (lightly fictionalised) reading sessions. Finally, I suggest some guidelines for facilitators.
