"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
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
* identify 6 signposts that help readers understand and respond to character development, conflict, point of view, and
* 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.
