While looking to spend $$$ on a gift card that I received, I saw a book on amazon.com that had an incredible rating. Out of 65+ reviews, it had an average of 4.9 out of 5 stars. The reviews raved how this was the most helpful book on teaching reading they ever read. As good as it boasted, I feel it is even better. The clear and easy to use techniques have been more helpful than anything I have ever taught my students in 20+ years of teaching. The book is Notice & Note by Kylene Beers & Robert E. Probst. I highly recommend it for any teacher grades 3-8 and probably for grades 9-12 as well. If you feel you don't have much time, the first 5 chapters through p. 33 are mostly common sense and could be skipped. Anyone else come across this gem of a book?
