Voting on covers!

 

Bob Probst and I have narrowed our choices of covers for our new book “Notice and Note” to two.  Now we’d love you to weigh in!   Which cover do you like best?  Respond here or on Twitter to @KyleneBeers with Cover 1 (The one with “Notice and Note” on 2 lines) or Cover 2 (The one with “Notice and Note” on 1 line).   All votes due by 9:00 a.m. Thursday, June 14.

So many teachers from across the nation let us into their classrooms or taught the lessons for us as we were developing these strategies that it seemed only natural–and right–to extend the collaboration to this level of the process of moving from idea to book.  Thank you dear teachers for all that you do.

  1. I think the one with 2 lines is more eye-catching with the color split, but as is, I vote for Cover 1 with your names highlighted in another color. I wish the split could be 2/3 up and the phrase “strategies for close reading” below the 2 line title.

    Either way, can’t wait to read it!

  2. I prefer cover 2. The dominant picture covering edge to edge is trendy.

  3. Cover 2 looks like it fits more with other covers of yours, and #1 feels more disjointed, like it’s made of 2 choices put together. I vote for #2.

  4. I like cover 2 because the large Notice and Note on one line catches the eye as the essential part of the title. I also like the warmth of the colors.

  5. I prefer cover 2. The one with Notice and Note on one line. The entire cover looks more current. can’t wait to read it!

  6. I like the way the text, all of the text, stands out on cover 1. Hello to Dr. Probst who taught me at Georgia State in the 90s. With the CC emphasis on text based answers and deeper reading, I hope this book will help us provide scaffolding for the struggling readers working with as they work with more difficult texts.
