Teaching "Notice & Note" and "Reading Nonfiction" Together


If you’ve been eagerly anticipating Kylene Beers and Bob Probst's nonfiction follow-up to Notice & Note, the wait is overReading Nonfiction: Notice & Note Stances, Signposts, and Strategies is out now. In today's post, Bob and Kylene discuss how Notice & Note and Reading Nonfiction might be taught together.

The two books combined should help you work with a student on his or her responsibility to the text. With fiction, the responsibility is with the student: What are the themes? How are you responding to the plot and characters? With nonfiction, however, the student is responsible for his or her assessment of the quoted words and sources: Why is this person quoted and not someone else? How do I weigh and judge these sources?
