The purpose of this study is to investigate the impact of close reading on third grade students’ reading comprehension. The participants of this study consisted of two third grade classes in the same school in Anne Arundel County. This study has been created in order to find out if close reading strategies will help 3rd grade students to make growth on an assessment focusing specially on the standard RL 3.1. The results determined no significant difference between the success of students who used close reading strategies and the students who were not taught close reading strategies during the language arts instruction. Research in the area of close reading strategies should continue.
