  1. Teaching Words and How They Work: Small Changes for Big Vocabulary Results

    Research shows that vocabulary is the best support for students’ comprehension of narrative and information texts. Often, vocabulary instruction focuses on a few target words in specific texts. However, to understand the many new words in complex texts students need to know how words work. This book, written by an award-winning authority on reading instruction, shows teachers how to make small changes to teach more words and also how words work. Many of these small changes involve enrichments to existing vocabulary practices, such as word walls and conversations with students. Each chapter includes descriptions of teachers’ implementation of small changes to support big gains in students’ vocabulary. This book offers practical steps that F-8 teachers can use in any reading program.

  2. Engaging Literate Minds: Developing Children’s Social, Emotional, and Intellectual Lives, K–3

    Interestingly, educators are recognising that for children to thrive intellectually they need socially and emotionally healthy classrooms. Conveniently, this is exactly what parents have always wanted for their children - classrooms that offer and grow positive relationships and behaviour, emotional self-regulation and a sense of wellbeing. Using the guiding principles from Peter Johnston’s bestselling professional resources, Choice Words and Opening Minds, Peter and six colleagues began a journey to create just such classrooms - environments in which children meaningfully engage with each other through reading, writing, making and discussing books. In Engaging Literate Minds, you’ll discover how these teachers struggled and succeeded in building such classrooms.
