Dedicated to Teachers


When we share, we get better

When we share, we get better

Written by Kylene Beers and Bob Probst

First, a thank you to Brent Peterson for making these short videos! We found them via a Twitter or Facebook post and once we watched a few we were amazed. They are succinct, clear, and short enough that students can watch anytime, anyplace. We think they serve as wonderful over-the-shoulder coaching as well as information for parents who want to help their children. Teachers might consider making their own videos (and we'd be excited to see the ones that kids might make!). Brent's videos are great models for what you might do. While at one point in our teaching pasts it might have been true that teachers shut the door to do their own thing, now, we’ve found that teachers metaphorically have flung the classroom door wide open as they have taken their great ideas to Pinterest and Facebook and Twitter. We encourage you keep pinning, tweeting using #NoticeandNote, and posting your ideas on the Notice and Note Book Club page on Facebook. We believe that when teachers share how their students are using the signposts to become critical, close readers we all win—teachers and students. Keep sharing! Thanks again, Brent!
