Calvin Hobbes Reading

The notebook is where students will provide evidence of close reading.

This year, students will…

  • Learn how to write more deeply about texts of all kinds – novels, short stories, dramas, nonfiction, poetry.
  • Make connections to books that will keep them engaged and interested in reading.
  • Use the notebook as a place to hold a personal conversation about the texts they read.

As their teacher, I will…

  • Preserve and nurture their enjoyment of reading
  • Improve their ability to communicate insights
  • Present them with texts that challenge them
  • Provide reading choices that motivate them
