“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.”

    This is the BEST book I’ve EVER read on teaching reading. I’ve taught reading for 8 years and as a voracious reader myself, I know it can be hard to teach students specific skills that are so automatic for myself. 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 learning today. The middle goes over the various signposts, and the third section includes complete lessons WITH sample texts that you can teach to your students.
    These skills are vital for ALL readers–from strugglers to gifted students. It is the first step in teaching them how to think about literature and in preparing them for college level reading.
    BUY THIS BOOK! I wish every teacher in my district had this book!

    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. Practical and smart writing, careful and deliberate research and an easy to read format, make this text a must for literacy teachers, literacy coaches, reading interventionists and curriculum directors. My favorite gems include the streamlined language about big concepts that teach children how to notice and take note of six particular sign-posts found in most literature. Short, applicable and adaptable lessons about these six signposts are truly what teachers need access to and after my first round of using one lesson in a 5th grade classroom this morning, I had four students approach me to tell me how they were already noticing the concept in their lives or books! As a district literacy coach in a high-performing district, I will be doing a book study with my entire staff using this refreshing and practical text that houses many gems and will certainly change how you look at and teach children how to “read closely”. Highly applicable to grades 3-12!

    I chose this book when looking for a way for my students to deepen their understanding in book clubs. I like that it is easy to follow and the strategies make sense. Several teachers at my school did a professional book club with this book and we are impressed with the conversations students are having in their book clubs and even with whole class lit discussions. This book seems best for teachers of third grade and up.
