While blog surfing this evening, I read a post on Once Upon A Teaching Blog about reader’s notebooks and it reminded me of this fantastic book. So, I thought I would share.
Notebook Connections: Strategies for a Reader's Notebook
by Aimee Buckner
Buckner approaches the reader’s notebook like a writer's notebook. She teaches her students practical strategies to immerse themselves in the text and extend their thinking. The strategies have cool names like “The Fab Five” and “Leaning In.” In addition, she has strategies that invite students to reflect on their reading. Yes! She also provides examples of student work and her rubric for how she uses the reader’s notebook for a grade.
