The question I grappled with was how to move students from "couch-potato" readers who can answer basic questions with one word-to readers who think while reading-to readers who think beyond their reading. -Aimee Buckner In Notebook Know-How, Aimee Buckner demonstrated the power of notebooks to spark and capture students' ideas in the writing workshop. In Notebook Connections, she turns her focus to the reading workshop, showing how to transform those "couch-potato" readers into deep thinkers. Buckner's fourth-grade students use reader's notebooks as a place to document their thinking and growth, to support their thinking for group discussions, and to explore their own ideas about a text without every entry being judged as evidence of their reading progress. Buckner describes her model as flexible enough for students to respond in a variety of ways yet structured enough to provide explicit instruction. Notebook Connections leads teachers through the process of launching, developing, and fine-tuning a reader's notebook program. Teacher-guided lessons in every chapter help students create anchor texts for their notebooks using various comprehension and writing strategies. As students become more proficient, they grow more independent in their thinking and responses and will begin to select the strategies that work best for them. In the process, the notebook becomes a bridge that helps students make connections between ideas, texts, strategies, and their work as readers and writers. Notebook Connections, filled with lesson ideas and assessment tips, provides a comprehensive model for making reader's notebooks the centerpiece of your reading workshop.

"Explains how writer's notebooks can help students improve their nonfiction writing--reports, articles, memoirs, essays, and so forth--which has taken on even greater importance because of the emphasis the Common Core State Standards place on informative/explanatory writing. As Aimee explains, the prewriting work a student does is particularly important when writing informational pieces. Writer's notebooks help students capture their thoughts, develop ideas, explore mentor texts, refine a research strategy, and play with multiple outcomes--all of which lead to stronger concepts and better first drafts. Greater emphasis on the front end of the writing process also saves time and energy at the revision and editing stages. From exploring topics to gathering information to assessment, Nonfiction Notebooks takes teachers step-by-step through the process of how best to use notebooks for informational writing. Grades 3-8"--Back cover.

"This paper examined the type of writing middle school language arts students create in their personal journals and in their writer's notebooks. The paper is divided into three studies. Study One's purpose was to examine the type of writing students created in their personal journal and whether or not such writing helps to generate ideas for pieces the students create during the writing workshop. Using random samples of journal entries and open-ended questionnaires, it was found that students mainly write personal reactions to the events in their day. This writing did not appear to help students generate ideas for their self-sponsored writing during the writing workshop. Given this lack of connection Study Two examined the type of writing students created in another prewriting tool, the writer's notebook, and whether or not such writing helped to generate ideas for pieces the students create during the writing workshop. Study Two found that students created observational entries, as well as entries that were the beginnings of self-sponsored pieces. The results also suggested that students viewed and used the writer's notebook as a prewriting tool. To investigate further the possible link between the writer's notebook and students' own pieces and to examine how students use the writer's notebook as their writing process matures, Study Three was conducted using the same subjects later in the school year. Studies One and Two were conducted as the student's writing process was beginning to take shape. Study Three occurred approximately 60 writing workshop days after Study Two. The results of Study Three suggested that students used the writer's notebook as one of their ways to generate ideas. Discussion of the efficacy of the personal journal and the writer's notebook as prewriting tools is presented."--Author's abstract.
