Notice and Note: Strategies for Close Reading by Kayleen Beers and Robert Probst is a book that changed my world as a teacher. Using these strategies to teach reading has opened up so much more clarity, comprehension, and confidence in my students as readers. These strategies work for students from around third grade through high school even. The strategies work for any nonfiction book.
After teaching each of the strategies, it's helpful to have a reminder of each strategy to keep posted around the classroom.
This product has colorful signpost posters that give all the information needed for your student to find a signpost and respond to it in their reading. I use the posters when teaching the signpost and then add them to my reading wall where I hang other reading resources.
In addition, the final page of this PDF has smaller portions of each poster. I usually print them on 11x17 bond paper and cut them out for each student to glue into their reading journals. This gives them a nice anchor along with other strategies that are in their interactive notebooks. We usually take them time to highlight those sentences that are in red (since I print in black and white) and talk about the importance of remembering those pieces when finding the signpost. It's not just about finding the sign post, but also about making the text more accessible once you find them.
