Product Description

Annotating text is an important skill for all students. Students need to have an understanding of what to mark in a book as important and why it is important. Notice & Note allows students to determine key elements in a story and its importance. I have designed bookmarks for students to use to help these key elements in fiction and annotate each in their text using symbols I have created for each Notice & Note domain.

There are six research-based domains that students should be able to identify in a book: Contrasts & Contradictions, Aha Moment, Tough Questions, Words of the Wiser, Again & Again, and Memory Moment.

Contrasts & Contradictions: A contrast between what we would expect and what we observe the character doing; behavior that contradicts previous behavior or well-established patterns

Aha Moment: A character's realization of something that shifts his or her actions or understanding of self, others, or the world around him or her.

Tough Questions: Questions a character raises that reveal his or her inner strengths

Words of the Wiser: The advice or insight a wiser character offers about life to the main character

Again & Again: Events, images, or particular words that recur over a portion of a novel.

Memory Moment: A recollection by a character that interrupts the forward progress of a story.

Once students are able to identify these domains, students should ask themselves the essentail questions I have provided on the second bookmark design. This will lead to an undersating of the character and novel as a whole. I suggest reading Notice & Note: Strategies for Close Reading by Kylene Beers & Robert E. Probst for more information about Notice & Note.

*I will be creating a curriculum based on Notice & Note that I will post at a later date. Be on the lookout for it!*
