Raising an Active Reader

This book extends on the ABCs of Active Reading (Ask Questions, Build Vocabulary, and make Connections) as they apply to older children and picture books, chapter books, and novels.

Raising an Active Reader

Parents and teachers know that reading aloud to children is important, and many parents of young children read aloud to them daily. However, when children start to read on their own, parents often stop reading aloud. But, the early elementary school years, when children are learning how to read on their own, is a perfect time to build vocabulary and comprehension skills through read aloud and Active Reading. Raising an Active Reader makes clear the process of learning to read, how Active Reading fits into raising strong readers, and the behaviors that adults can do to encourage strong language, comprehension, and vocabulary in children in grades K-3. This book extends on the ABCs of Active Reading (Ask Questions, Build Vocabulary, and make Connections) as they apply to older children and picture books, chapter books, and novels. Raising an Active Reader provides parents and teachers with the knowledge and skills to engage elementary school-aged children (grades K-3) in Active Reading with examples, clear explanations, and ideas for making one-on-one or small group read aloud sessions a powerful way to build children’s early literacy and language skills, all while creating a lifelong love of reading.

Raising Literacy Achievement in High Poverty Schools

This book shares lessons gleaned from a two-year intervention in a high-poverty school, which was highly successful in significantly narrowing the literacy achievement gap and in raising children’s motivation and engagement in literacy both inside and outside school. Kennedy argues that there is much that disadvantaged schools can do to close the gap, but this is more likely to occur when a research-based approach to instruction (with a dual emphasis on cognitive skills and motivation and engagement), assessment and professional development is undertaken.

Time Management for Students

Students today have exciting career opportunities, but face stiff challenges to materialize them. Time management is the key to success. Those who manage time efficiently will get rewards; those who fail to do so, will face disappointments. Time management does not mean you need to turn into a workaholic. It means efficiently completing your work without stress; and getting more time for other enjoyable and fruitful pursuits. This is a 'work-book'. It is to be put into practice. It explains simple and effective techniques, and offers practical tips for time management. Topics include, 'efficient methods of studies', 'improving memory', 'speed reading' 'taking notes in class' 'time management during examinations'. But apart from a work-book, it is also a highly motivating book. It explains how the practice of time management will not only help students in the immediate context of their studies and examinations, but will also help and enrich them in later life. The deep but practical insights on time management developed by the author from his long and extraordinarily varied teaching experience are succinctly encapsulated and lucidly explained in this remarkable book. A book that every student must possess and read frequently to ensure success, now and in future.

Teaching Reading in the Secondary Schools

Being able to read well is one of the most important literacy requirements in our society. It is fundamental to almost all secondary school subjects and the English programme in particular. The new Key Stage 3 focus on teaching reading compels us to find exciting ways to engage young people with texts that they will continue with and develop themselves. This book outlines several approaches to reading which challenge former classroom practices. It is through these approaches that all students - from reluctant boys to the most able of either gender - can continue to grow as readers and develop their readiness to seek meaning in texts. This second edition adds to the original ideas in Geoff Dean's first book and includes new methods of teaching reading, including "guided reading" and using increased grammatical student knowledge.
