The district welcomed Northport Middle School reading specialists Tara Gaiss and Lauren Schwartz to lead a workshop introducing new reading program Notice and Note to middle school faculty. It is based on the book “Notice and Note- Strategies for Close Reading” by Kylene Beers and Robert Probst, which is a collection of meta-cognitive strategies and signposts that alert readers to significant moments in a work of literature, and encourage students to read more closely. The program is currently being used at Cherry Lane and Rushmore Avenue, and by September it will be incorporated at the middle school level.
