Author Says, I Say, So
Distribute text and graphic organizer to all students.
In small groups or individually, students read the text. As they read, they complete the first column with ideas and statements in the text that are notable to them.
You will likely need to model this process to students. Read aloud from a text, highlighting or starring notable lines and making exclamations such as, “Well THAT’S really surprising!” or “I’m not sure I agree with that,” or “That is perfectly said!” Consider providing students with a list of the types of lines in a text that might somehow be notable to a reader. (The book Notice and Note by Beers and Probst might be helpful here.)
