5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing and Practical, November 28, 2012
This review is from: Notice and Note: Strategies for Close Reading (Paperback)
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!
