Transcript of Notice & Note Signpost Lesson Collins

Read
Read about a character doing an action
in a setting

Understand what the character did &
where the character
is.
1
One neuron in your brain
Notice
The character
reminds you of someone

The action is something you've experienced or want to experience.

The setting feels familiar
2
Think
Wonder
if the character will act the way you would in that situation.

Emotionally respond
to how the character must feel
- surprise, fear, or excitement -
or the action the character decides to take.

Feel
the setting -
claustrophobic, joyful,
or thrilling!

Your brain will start to connect these neurons along with others to form a neural network.

These neural networks form our
ideas
and
memories
. They deepen our understanding of
ourselves
and
the world
around us.

When we
connect
to what we read,
we
create
,
expand
, and
strengthen
our neural networks,
making our
brains

stronger
and
more vital
.

Our brain
...So how can I make the strongest connections?
Connects to another neuron
This is how we interact with someone else's ideas through the words they've written
"'Tis the good reader...


This is what Ralph Waldo Emerson meant when he said,
...that makes the good book."
Let's go back into your WONDERFUL brain & see!
Sometimes you just have to

and take a moment to

those things you might miss
if you weren't looking for them.
The 6 Notice & Note Signposts
6 Signposts to SLOW DOWN,
Notice, & Note
When a character does something that contrasts with what you'd expect or contradicts his earlier acts or statements, STOP and ask,



The answer might help you make predictions and draw inferences about the plot and conflict.
Contrasts &
Contradictions
When you notice a word,
phrase, or situation mentioned
over and over, STOP and ask
yourself,



The answer might tell you about the themes and conflict, or could foreshadow what might happen later
in the story.
Again and Again
When a character (probably older and wiser) takes the main character aside and offers
serious advice,
STOP and ask,





*This lesson might be the
theme of the story.


Words of the Wiser
When the author interrupts the action to tell you about a memory, STOP and ask yourself,




The answer might tell you about the theme and conflict, or maybe foreshadow what might happen later in the story.
Memory Moments
When a character realizes, understands, or finally figures out something, STOP and ask yourself,



If it is about a problem, it might tell you
something about the conflict or plot;
if it is a life lesson, it might tell you
something about the theme.
AHA Moment
When a character asks himself a very difficult question, STOP and ask yourself,




The answer might tell you about the conflict or help you think about what might happen later in the story.


Tough Questions
Even though they are called "Signposts", I like to think of them as
speedbumps
.
You may not notice them at first, but when you do,
they remind you to
slow down
.
"How might this change things?"
"Why is the character doing that?"
"What does this question
make
me
wonder about?"
"What's the life lesson, and
how might it affect the
character?"
"Why does this keep happening
again and again?"
"Why might this memory
be important?"
Slow Down
Notice
Remember...
Your
will thank you!
Thank you!
More & More Neurons
More & More Connections!
