Heinemann Educational Books "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 Watch Kylene and Bob's webinar on Notice & Note (approx. 30 minutes) 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 has been perfectly written and organized that you and your students could start learning TODAY about how to "notice and note" the signposts that authors use to alert you to important information.The beginning of the book includes information about the state of reading, teaching and lea..
I love the new book, Notice and Note. It is exactly what is needed to bridge the TAKS test to the STAAR test, but more importantly it helps students know what to look for when they read. When you have a student expectation that says, "explain the influence of the setting on plot development," there is not a work sheet available that will reach what this expectation is asking. Notice and Note, is just what we need to help students on these types of expectations. Thanks for helping our teachers move from ..
Kylen Beers and Bob Probst have given teachers (and the children they teach) a wonderful gift in the form of their new book, Notice and Note. I read this book quickly and felt as if I'd struck gold and am now rereading it to mine all the little pieces I missed the first time through.

My favorite gems incl..
