A consumable student component

Through their book, Notice and Note, Kylene Beers and Bob Probst transformed how teachers help students read and analyze complex texts. Now they’ve distilled that teaching into a compact and accessible format for students.

  • The first section of this interactive notebook offers students passages from popular novels in which they can practice—as a class or on their own—finding the Notice and Note Signposts. Each practice passage is followed with comments from Bob and Kylene that explain to students what they read. These passages are perfect for minilessons the teacher might want to use to reinforce or reteach signpost lessons.
  • In the second section, students log the books they are reading.
  • In the final section, students have space to track their thinking and take notes on what they notice as they read novels for class or on their own.

The Notice and Note Literature Log is more than a place where students can “note what they notice.” Through its regular coaching commentary, this literature log offers students an opportunity, during independent reading, to read and learn with two master educators at their side.
