Teaching Our Children to Read

Teaching Our Children to Read

When the First Edition of this book was written, there was a great deal of controversy about the role of direct skill instruction in teaching children to read. In the past five years, scientific research and studies of effective teaching practices have quelled the controversy. Today, except of a few holdouts, there is general consensus that in addition to varied language- and literature-based activities, reading instruction should include explicit and systematic instruction in the basic skills that help students become fluent, automatic readers. Across the country, policy-makers, educators, and publishers have begun to respond. The real challenge is how to implement what we know are the best research-based practices in reading materials adopted, in training teachers, and in school leadership. This Second Edition has grown out of the experiences of scores of dedicated teachers and their success in the classroom. It provides an updated overview of important research and instructional strategies that will bring all students to higher levels of literacy. Expanded sections on phonics instruction; connected practice with decodable text; fluency; multisyllabic word instruction; spelling; vocabulary and concept development; strategic reading; text organization; book discussions; and literacy benchmarks, assessment and intervention included. New tables are provided in Resource A. There are also revisions to the Frequently Asked Questions and the major points discussed in Resource B.

Comprehensive Literacy Basics

Teaching English language arts at grades K-5 is both a science and an art. Educators must teach literacy skills and content with best practices, while also keeping focus on each student's individual needs. They are challenged to monitor students working independently while also conducting small group instruction. And they must focus on providing differentiated support with a rather complicated text. With increased attention to rigor, requirements, and personalized instruction, it can be a challenge to make sure all students are receiving instruction that is just right. Comprehensive Literacy Basics: An Anthology by Capstone Professional contains useful tips to support educators. Chapters focus on each part of the literacy and language arts block, including whole group, small group, writing, and differentiation. A collection of expert authors specializing in literacy and language arts instruction contributed chapters to the book. The quick tips and suggestions within will reinforce current practices while providing an invaluable go-to reference.

Understanding What Reading Is All About

The guide is for teachers of adult basic education learners who read at a 0-6 reading level. Students can take the information they learn from the lessons in this guide and apply it directly to their own reading.

Understanding What Reading Is All About

This guide offers a set of 13 lessons designed to help learners understand the components of reading that are part of becoming a more fluent reader, and to guide them as they work with the teacher to set their own goals for reading. The lessons can be used as an independent mini-course, or they can be integrated into an existing curriculum. The guide is not intended as a comprehensive reading course or curriculum; rather, it can inform teachers and students as they plan learning activities that address the goals and skill needs of learners. For example, some learners, particularly those at a beginning reading level, may benefit from a highly structured curriculum of direct reading instruction, and this guide can help point them in that direction. The guide is for teachers of adult basic education learners who read at a 0-6 reading level. Students can take the information they learn from the lessons in this guide and apply it directly to their own reading. It can also be adapted for use with ESOL learners. However, some activities are not appropriate or may need to be modified for beginning-level ESOL learners. The 13 lessons are: (1) The Demands of Reading; (2) Goals for Reading, Part 1; (3) Goals for Reading, Part 2; (4) The Components of Reading; (5) Analyzing Words; (6) Reading Words by Sight; (7) Reading with Fluency; (8) Developing Reading Vocabulary; (9) Developing Reading Comprehension; (10) Developing an Individual Reading Profile; (11) Reviewing the Individual Reading Profile; (12) Understanding Learning Disabilities; and (13) Improving Your Spelling (Optional).

Teacher Evaluation

This handbook advocates a new approach to teacher evaluation as a cooperative effort undertaken by a group of professionals. Part 1 describes the need for changed teacher evaluation, and part 2 outlines ways to use multiple data sources, including student and parent reports, peer review of materials, student achievement results, teacher tests, documentation of professional activity, systematic observation, and administrator reports, as well as discussions of the teacher as curriculum designer and data sources to avoid. Part 3 describes tools for improved teacher evaluation, and the evaluation of other educators is outlined in part 4. School district responsibilities and activities are described in part 5. This edition adds new chapters on: (1) the role of the principal in changed teacher evaluation; (2) how districts can transform current practice; (3) use of national standards; (4) developments in using student achievement data; and (5) the development of sociologically sophisticated teacher evaluation systems. Emphasis is placed on the use of the Internet as a resource and other new resources for local development. A list of legal cases cited is included. (Contains 343 references.) (SLD)
