  1. Literacy Reframed: How a Focus on Decoding, Vocabulary, and Background Knowledge Improves Reading Comprehension

    For decades, educators have struggled to overcome stunted student growth in literacy. Literacy reframed offers a fresh perspective on reading instruction with a robustly research-affirmed alternative to classroom skill work. Authors Robin J Fogarty, Gene M Kerns and Brian M Pete use the big three elements of literacy – decoding, vocabulary and knowledge – to guide educators in creating a classroom environment where students deeply engage in reading, writing, speaking and listening. The wealth of concrete, adaptable classroom examples and scenarios throughout the book will help K–12 teachers take action on this exciting approach.

  2. Metacognition: The Neglected Skill Set for Empowering Students, Revised Edition

    How do we prepare our students for the test of life? We give them the gift of self-reflection, self-awareness, self-initiative, self-direction, self-assessment and self-regulation - the gift of knowing when they know, and when they don't know. Metacognition: The Neglected Skill Set for Empowering Students, is written with the teacher in mind. It is more practical than theoretical, but most definitely grounded in research findings and connected to emergent data. With the 30 ready-to-use metacognitive strategies in this book, teachers will deepen learning for their students through explicit reflections on planning, monitoring and evaluating their own work. As students learn how to think about their own thinking, they become more aware and better able to make adjustments on their own work.
