Notice and Note -- Strategies for Close Reading by Kylene Beers and Robert E. Probst provides us teachers the "missing link" between what our Georgia Standards of Excellence expect and what our current curricular approach lacks by providing multiple strategies and text-dependent anchor questions to help build deep, analytic, independent readers within our school.

Over the next several weeks, we will investigate excerpts of the in-depth research conducted by Beers and Probst that led to the creation of this book. We will then study the various strategies and anchor questions for classroom use. In the end, we will implement the text's recommendations with our current Bookworms curriculum to raise the level of rigor and demand of student performance in a natural, organic approach.

  • Book Study Kickoff!

    Welcome to our Online Classroom for our ELA 3-5 book study for Notice & Note -- Strategies for Close Reading by Kylene Beers and Robert E. Probst. I look forward to our academic discussion and our implementation of these strategies to help build active, independent readers who are ready for more advanced coursework over time!
