As a freshman at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, I spent a good amount of time my first semester stressed out and crying. It wasn't because I missed my family and didn't like my new roommate. It wasn't the amount of reading I was being asked to do or the college algebra class that offered problems harder than any I'd ever seen. What made me cry was professors in Literature and Sociology classes asking me, "What do you think?" I searched high and low in the book for the answers to that question. As Valedictorian of my high school class, I was good at finding the answer in the book. Why couldn't I find it now? I went to the professor's office hours and the writing resource lab. I discovered that the answer was within me, I'd just never been asked for my opinion before. Eleven years later, it's even more essential for our students to know how they feel about what they read and what they think about it. Not only should we demand that our students can articulate their thoughts, but that they should be able to reflect on those thoughts through writing. The Reader's Notebook by Fountas and Pinell allow students to do all their thinking, reflecting, question asking and writing in one place -- in a place that's all theirs. Students no longer write "book reports," rather active dialogues. The dialogue exists between themselves and other students as well as themselves and the teacher. The notebook is a place to store student thinking for later review, reflection, and sharing. It also helps the teacher assess student thinking and writing. All students benefit from the use of Reader's Notebooks as an essential part of their literacy block. Each student has their own notebook and uses it EVERYDAY!
