Transcript of Close Reading: Notice and Note
Notice and Note
Kylene Beers and Bob Probst
Asking questions is essential if students are to have any chance of moving beyond shallow interpretation.
Teachers should emphasize the value of a second and third wave of thinking.
"At school, I have to be told what to think when I read hard stuff. I have no idea what's important."
Being able to distinguish big ideas from minutiae is a skill that adolescent readers desperately need.
Students often seem mystified when asked to determine what is important in an assigned reading.
Giving students a purpose for their reading and telling them what to look for is not "dumbing down" content.
We want them inside the text noticing everything, questioning everything, weighing everything they are reading against their lives, the lives of others, and the world around them.

Interpreting without asking key
questions is like watching a
movie with the sound
We believe it is the
interaction between the reader and the text that not only creates reading, but creates the reason to read.
