Join the New York City Writing Project for the launch of our TEACHER BOOK CLUBS! Over four sessions we will gather to read, discuss, and share practical applications from Notice & Note: Strategies for Close Reading (2012) by Kylene Beers and Bob Probst. Kylene Beers is one of the NYCWP's Keynote Speakers at our annual Teacher to Teacher Conference in April, so this is a great way to familiarize yourself with her work. This session will be facilitated by Priscilla Thomas and Alie Stumpf.
About the book:
In Notice and Note Kylene Beers and Bob Probst introduce 6 "signposts" that alert readers to significant moments in a work of literature and encourage students to read closely. Learning first to spot these signposts and then to question them enables readers to explore any text while finding evidence to support their interpretations.
We will host four book club sessions from 10:30 am - 12:30 pm on the following Saturdays: January 16, 2016; January 30, 2016; February 27, 2016; March 19, 2016.
Participation is FREE, but please purchase your copy of the text prior to the first meeting.
