Book Description

November 1, 2009 0807750255 978-0807750254
This book outlines a five-part framework for teachers, reading specialists, and literacy coaches who want to help their least engaged students become powerful readers. Merging theory and practice, the book offers practical strategies that elementary school teachers can use with struggling readers. The authors argue that teachers must learn to turn-around their own teaching practice, beginning with reading materials, lessons, and activities based around their students interests. Chapters include exercises that will help teachers analyze their reading instruction, as well as practical advice for working with English Language Learners.

Editorial Reviews


"This is a masterwork that is simultaneously practical and groundbreaking...The model these authors use to familiarize teachers with the essential elements of reading practice is clear and beautifully illustrated with stories of children you'll swear you know." -From the Foreword by Ellin Oliver Keene, national staff developer, co-author of Mosaic of Thought: The Power of Comprehension Strategy Instruction "This deeply intelligent and compassionate book provides teachers with detailed classroom scenarios and dozens of teaching tools for engaging all readers. The authors demonstrate how to help all students become motivated and powerful meaning-makers of a wide variety of texts." -Katherine Bomer, Literacy Consultant, K-12, author of For a Better World: Reading and Writing for Social Action "Unlike the plethora of books that claim to provide teachers with powerful teaching strategies to help children who struggle with reading, The Reading Turn-Around actually accomplishes this. The book is full of detailed case studies of students that teachers will recognize and strategies that teachers can use. There is no other book like it in the field." -Catherine Compton-Lilly, Assistant Professor, University of Wisconsin, Madison"
