  1. A Close Look at Close Reading: Teaching Students to Analyze Complex Texts, Grades K-5

    While primary teachers are certainly willing to teach students to closely read both literacy and informational text, many are wondering what this involves. Is there a process to follow? How is close reading different from guided reading or other common literacy practices? Is it even possible for students in years F-5 to 'read to learn' when they're only just learning to read? Literacy experts Diane Lapp, Barbara Moss, Maria Grant and Kelly Johnson answer these questions and more as they explain how to teach young learners to be close readers and how to make close reading a habit of practice in the primary classroom. Equipping students with the tools and process of close reading sets them on the road to becoming analytical and critical thinkers - and empowered and independent learners.

  12. Assessment and Student Success in a Differentiated Classroom

    Carol Ann Tomlinson and Tonya R. Moon take an in-depth look at assessment and show how differentiation can improve the process in all year levels and subject areas. After discussing differentiation in general, the authors focus on how differentiation applies to various forms of assessment – pre-assessment, formative assessment and summative assessment – and to grading and student reports. Detailed scenarios illustrate how assessment differentiation can occur in three realms and how it can improve assessment validity and reliability and decrease errors and teacher bias. Assessment and Student Success in a Differentiated Classroom outlines a common-sense approach that empowers teachers and students to discover and achieve their full potential.
