"When students recognize that nonfiction ought to challenge us, ought to slow us down and make us think, then they're more likely to become close readers." That means we need to help them question texts, authors, and, ultimately, their own thinking. No matter the content area, with Reading Nonfiction's classroom-tested suggestions, you'll lead kids toward skillful and responsible disciplinary literacy. Picking up where their smash hit Notice & Note left off, Kylene Beers and Bob Probst write: "Fiction invites us into the writer's imagined world; nonfiction intrudes into ours and purports to tell us something about it." This crucial difference increases the responsibility of the nonfiction reader, so Kylene and Bob have developed interlocking scaffolds that every student can use to go beyond a superficial reading: 3 essential questions that set students up for closer, more attentive readings of nonfiction texts 5 Notice & Note nonfiction signposts that cue kids to apply the skills and processes that sophisticated readers use instinctively 7 proven strategies readers can use to clear up confusions when the text gets tough. We all know the value of helping students define nonfiction and understand its text structures. Reading Nonfiction goes the next crucial step-helping kids challenge the claims of nonfiction authors, be challenged by them, and skillfully and rigorously make up their mind about purported truths.

"The essential element in rigor is engagement. If students are to read rigorously they must be committed to understanding some intriguing character, to solving some problem, to figuring out what a writer believes and how those thoughts compare with their own. The literary signposts in Notice and Note encourage this rigor. Now in the Notice and Note Literature Log, we share our signposts with students." -Kylene Beers and Robert E. Probst Notice and Note transformed how teachers help students read and analyze complex texts. Now a new Notice and Note Literature Log offers students practice finding the signposts-with over-the-shoulder coaching from Kylene and Bob. The first section of this interactive notebook offers students passages from popular novels in which they can practice-as a class or on their own-finding the Notice and Note signposts. Each practice passage is followed with comments from Bob and Kylene that explain to students what they read. These passages are perfect for minilessons the teacher might want to use to reinforce or reteach signpost lessons. In the second section, students log the books they are reading. In the final section, students have space to track their thinking and take notes on what they notice as they read novels for class or on their own. The Notice and Note Literature Log is more than a place where students can "note what they notice." Through its regular coaching commentary, this literature log offers students an opportunity, during independent reading, to read and learn with two master educators at their side.
