Presented by Jeffrey D. Wilhelm

Based on Jeffrey Wilhelm’s book Diving Deep into Nonfiction with coauthor Michael Smith, this webinar showcases a revolutionary teaching framework that helps students read nonfiction well by using four kinds of rules of notice—topics of textual conversation, key details, varied nonfiction genres, and embedded text structures—so that students can deeply understand how texts are constructed to communicate specific meanings and effects.

Participants will:

  • Learn the four kinds of rules of notice and how they signal what is important to notice and remember in a text
  • Discover how the rules of notice tip off readers to the conversational topics taken up by a text, the key details about the topic, and how the details are structured for meaning and effect through the use of genre and embedded text structures
  • Explore how readers connect and make meaning of what they have noticed to understand deep meanings and how texts are structured for meaning and effect, as well as to better understand themselves through their responses
