As a novice myself, entering into the world of teaching, I have found Ms. Routman's book to be my bible, at my fingertips in the classroom and on my desktop when preparing lessons, research papers, and answering some of those tough questions like, "Well, Johnny doesn't WANT to read! What can I do to motivate him into a love of learning?" Ms. Routman answers this question and more.
I'm not talking about an author who gives wonderfully idealistic examples of "what to do", but an author who describes, through concrete examples, lessons, approaches, philisophy, and ideas as to HOW to set up your classroom and get your kids reading and writing. She also includes an abundance of resource information (in her "Blue Pages" section) as to where to seek out additional information. An entire section is outlined in detail on how to present "fantasy" writing for children. It's as if somebody took the time to do the work for you, yet she leads you to a place where you want to go beyond what she's done and create even more for yourself and for your students.Read more ›
Some say that whole language is a fraud and that it doesn't work. That is truly unfortunate. It has gotten a bad rap because many people assume that whole language ignores the skills. I taught phonics in my classroom and it was a whole language classroom. Phonics are necessary but just not the only thing necessary and this book helps you to find the other parts of a good literacy program!
