Description

Product Description

"Just as rigor does not reside in the barbell but in the act of lifting it, rigor in reading is not an attribute of a text but rather of a reader''s behavior-engaged, observant, responsive, questioning, analytical. The close reading strategies in Notice and Note will help you cultivate those critical reading habits that will make your students more attentive, thoughtful, independent readers."

-Kylene Beers and Robert E. Probst

Also available: Notice & Note/Reading Nonfiction Signpost Student Bookmarks

Notice and Note Book Club Facebook Page

In Notice and Note Kylene Beers and Bob Probst introduce 6 "signposts" that alert readers to significant moments in a work of literature and encourage students to read closely. Learning first to spot these signposts and then to question them, enables readers to explore the text, any text, finding evidence to support their interpretations. In short, these close reading strategies will help your students to notice and note.

In this timely and practical guide Kylene and Bob:

  • examine the new emphasis on text-dependent questions, rigor, text complexity, and what it means to be literate in the 21st century
  • identify 6 signposts that help readers understand and respond to character development, conflict, point of view, and theme
  • provide 6 text-dependent anchor questions that help readers take note and read more closely
  • offer 6 Notice and Note model lessons, including text selections and teaching tools, that help you introduce each signpost to your students.

Notice and Note will help create attentive readers who look closely at a text, interpret it responsibly, and reflect on what it means in their lives. It should help them become the responsive, rigorous, independent readers we not only want students to be but know our democracy demands.

A new Notice and Note Literature Log offers students practice finding the signposts-with over-the-shoulder coaching from Kylene and Bob. Save with 5-packs.

This book is the most amazing strategies book ever. After reading it I immediately put my new knowledge to work in my 4/5th grade classroom, teaching my students to look for the signpost that opened up comprehension and understanding on a whole different level. It is well written and easy to read, (I finished it in a weekend) and by Monday morning I had created one of the provided anchor charts and started my students on the road to deeper and more consistent understanding of text. It provides wonderful mentor texts suggestions and clear and easy to follow examples on how to start implementing the strategies from day one. By day two, my students were calling out signpost examples on their own!!! The beauty of this book is that it gave me the language to teach my students just what to look for when reading in order to better connect with the content. It was and is AWESOME to see students interact with a text on a deeper level. And it''s fun!!!

This book did not disappoint! All the reviews I read before purchasing the book were all correct--it is a book that is well written, is research-based, and explains in a well-laid out way how the various strategies used to teach close reading can be used in a regular classroom, even an elementary classroom. I am still reading it but I love that the chapters are short, and the language is an easy-read. The examples from actual texts are great and the section at the end of each chapter allows the book to be used for professional development. I wasn''t sure how to teach close reading strategies, but this book has given me many ways this can be done.

This book was recommended to me on some online groups for furthering my professional development in reading as an upper elementary teacher. I absolutely love this book. The authors clearly have some of the same values as I do, such as letting children read frequently and widely. This book is really a game changer for my career. Teaching the strategies in this book, combined with Donalyn Miller''s, really eliminate a lot of the need for other resources to go along with novels. I am thrilled with this book, and I am so glad that I took the leap and purchased it. I have already started to share it with my colleagues. I cannot wait to get my hands on the nonfiction version!

This book is based on the idea that readers will be better engaged when they look for six distinct "sign-posts." The suggestions primarily pertain to fictional works. I believe that the work would be stronger if the authors had included a "sign-post" for informational texts, but nevertheless I recommend it. This work is written for the English Language Arts or Reading Coach. One can find companion videos that help explain the ideas on the Internet, and each is about five minutes in length.

This book is an excellent resource for teaching Close Reading. It is well written, with lots of great ideas for encouraging students to think critically about what they are reading. The authors describe specific instances of teachers using the strategies with their classes, and have provided examples of graphic aids. I created a FlipChart based on the six "signposts" and tried it out on my students this past year. They stayed engaged and seemed to easily "get" the material.

I love the philosophy of this book. I am using it in all the grades I teach. The students are with me every step of the way and get excited when they find the "signposts" on their own.

At last it''s here--a book that offers a focus for reading literature beyond the necessary, but overused elements of plot, character, setting, and theme. Notice & Note should top the professional reading lists of teachers interested in optimizing their students'' literacy skills--not only for its well-crafted presentation of unique, creative strategies, but also for its authors'' ability to present important information clearly and concisely without obscure educational jargon. Calling upon decades of experience as public school and university teachers, Beers and Probst developed their Notice and Note Signposts after reading, re-reading, and studying the most widely taught novels in grades 4-12. From this research, the authors crafted six signposts for studying a novel that focus on signals writers include in a book to highlight critical aspects of the story being studied and paired questions with the signposts to help students analyze those signals. Once students master the signposts, they are armed with strategies and questions that compel them to go to the author''s words and read closely to gain knowledge from the text. They become sleuths using the signposts as clues to solve the puzzle that is literature. Very quickly they learn that they can use the signposts independently, with reading/writing partners, or cooperative team members. Suddenly literature classes are energized and students are motivated. Nothing in this book is run-of-the-mill; instead its strategies are creative and thought-provoking. Not surprisingly because students are delving deeply into novels with practical strategies they can actually use, they begin to have fun learning despite having to work hard to understand what the author is saying. Teachers, label this book a "must have."
