Close Reading Hardcore pornography is pornography that depicts penetration or extreme fetish acts, or both. In academic discourse, racial fetishism is a postcolonialist term found in the writings of authors such as Homi K. On the other hand, the masochist enjoys being hurt, humiliated, or suffering within the consensual scenario. Types of anal sex can also be a part of lesbian sexual practices. At the end of the evening the female partners would randomly select keys from the bowl and leave with that key owner. Foot fetishism has been defined as a pronounced sexual milf sex videos interest in the feet or footwear. Biological anthropologist Helen B. Double Stuffed , Double Vaginal , or Double Anal pornography involves the penetration of one orifice by two penises or other objects. Transsexual porn star Wendy Williams has stated that transsexual Porn is classified as Straight Specialty. Such ejaculation can be done by mammary intercourse, or masturbation over the other person, or result from the withdrawal of the penis from a partner mouth as he is ejaculating following fellatio, irrumatio, or intercourse. Sub-genres can also be classified into the characteristics of the performers or the type of sexual activity on which it concentrates, and not necessarily on the market to which each sub-genre appeals. This type of pornography is almost exclusively hentai, as true hermaphroditic humans are not fertile and are not usually found in nature. In humans, females generally have more round and voluptuous buttocks, caused by estrogen that encourages the body to store fat in the buttocks, hips, and thighs. Bondage pornography specializes in the depiction of sexual bondage or BDSM activities as photographs, stories, movies, or drawings. A related term used in the genre is the term cougar, which implies an older woman as predator. Bukkake pornography involves a performer, usually female, onto whom several men or women ejaculate, usually on the face. Common phrases used to refer to these individuals are chicks with dicks or the derogatory term shemale, although these are generally considered pejorative among transwomen. & Critical Thinking

for the Common Core

NEW 2-day Course!

How do we fulfill the expectations of the Common Core with struggling readers, advanced readers and everyone in-between, when we know that close reading is a difficult skill even for experienced, adult readers? Close Reading can be extremely engaging, productive and confidence-boosting for the struggling reader and the advanced reader alike. Critical thinking, a highly valuable skill, together with close reading are the keys not only to the Common Core, but future academic success. Furthermore, how do we extend the thinking around a piece of text, enabling students to access deep meanings, create thinking analogies and encourage perspective taking? How do we provide students our students with the ability and opportunity to think critically about ideas while they engage with a piece of text? Participants will explore these questions while cultivating their own ability to think critically about these practices. Workshop is appropriate for K-5.

Day 1:

  • Learn strategies for helping students gather evidence, knowledge, and insight from what they read and discuss methods for gradually releasing them towards independence.
  • Participate in an adult-level close reading experience. Learn to write text-dependent questions for both narrative and expository genres, and how to provide entry-points for all children through discourse, visual media, and annotation.
  • Participants are encouraged to bring a text in order to develop close reading lesson strategies that they can use with their own students.


Day 2:*

  • Understand the disciplinary overlaps in CCSS and how elements of critical thinking are integrated throughout.
  • Engage in multiple opportunities to think critically using video, social media and primary source texts.
  • Explore scaffolds for integrating critical thinking into multiple classroom contexts.
  • Plan to apply critical thinking models into reading and writing within your common core classroom.

*PLEASE NOTE: If you've taken our 1-day Close Reading workshop in the past, you can now register for Day 2-Critical Thinking only!

Note: Students with difficulties decoding the text can be assisted to grapple with the deep meanings and sophisticated syntax that complex texts provide. These motivating practices provide an excellent counterpoint to intensive decoding and fluency intervention that many struggling readers receive.

Positive Teacher Reviews!

"This workshop was fantastic. I have a clearer understanding of close reading and text dependent questions. The frameworks provided will be used as I plan future lessons."
-Keri Fuller, Teacher, Norwell Public Schools

"I appreciate the opportunity to experience a close reading tasks as an adult reader. This activity is perhaps the most powerful as a practitioner. I think it is one that my colleagues will definitely benefit from. Thank you for the integration of scaffolds for our striving readers that will provide them with similar experiences. I am leaving with tools that I can use with students and colleagues tomorrow."
-Debra Pellerin, Reading Specialist, Wayland Public Schools
