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 Notewill help you cultivate those critical reading habits that will make your students more attentive, thoughtful, independent readers."-Kylene Beers and Robert E. ProbstIn Notice and NoteKylene Beersand Bob Probstintroduce 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 centuryidentify 6 signposts that help readers understand and respond to character development, conflict, point of view, and themeprovide 6 text-dependent anchor questions that help readers take note and read more closelyoffer 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.
