It goes without saying that teachers want their students to be attentive and analytical readers of text. But how does one actually go about teaching students the process of getting there?
Enter Notice and Note.
Notice & Note has quickly become a teacher favorite, thanks to the super effective close reading techniques outlined in the book, Notice & Note: Strategies for Close Reading, written by Kylene Beers and Robert E. Probst. Essentially, there are six signposts that serve as signals for readers to closely examine literature through a rigorous, analytical lens.
This product was designed to give teachers a detailed roadmap for navigating the historical fiction novel, I Survived the American Revolution, 1776, by Lauren Tarshis, with the six Notice and Note Signposts:
Contrasts and Contradictions; Aha Moment; Tough Questions; Word of the Wiser; Again and Again; and Memory Moment.
THIS PRODUCT IS PRESENTED IN TWO FORMATS:
♥ comprehensive notices and notes organized BY CHAPTER; useful when focusing on all six signposts at once
♥ comprehensive notices and notes organized BY SIGNPOST; useful when targeting one signpost at a time
There are a total of 81 signposts noticed and noted in this product.
NOTE: This product, along with the respective page numbers, is from the version of I Survived the American Revolution, 1776, that was published in 2017 (ISBN-10: 0545919738; ISBN-13: 978-0545919739). You may need to alter the page numbers if you are using a different version, although the content and signposts are still the same!
