  1. Mentor Texts, Second Edition: Teaching Writing Through Children’s Literature, K-6

    It's been a decade since Lynne Dorfman and Rose Cappelli wrote the first edition of Mentor Texts. The second edition includes brand-new "Your Turn Lessons", built around the gradual release of responsibility model, offering suggestions for demonstrations and shared or guided writing. Reflection is emphasised as a necessary component to understanding why mentor authors chose certain strategies, literacy devices, sentence structures and words. The book is organised around the characteristics of good writing - focus, content, organisation, style and conventions. Rose and Lynne write in a friendly and conversational style, employing numerous anecdotes to help teachers visualise the process and offer strategies that can be immediately implemented in the classroom.

  4. Literacy Out Loud: Creating Vibrant Classrooms Where “Talk” Is the Springboard for All Learning

    How can teachers create a lively social network of literacy learning where talk is the foundation? How can classroom talk be encouraged and guided so that students become fluent and effective oral communicators? This book proposes everyday activities that will answer these questions and help literacy flourish. The authors recognise the important role "talk" plays in developing the reading and writing abilities that students need. The book offers strategies where oral language takes centre stage and is fostered through engaging activities in F-8 classrooms. Literacy Out Loud argues that listening and speaking, or talk, is at the heart of a vibrant classroom. It shows teachers how to nurture dynamic classroom talk that is essential in its own right and makes all learning possible.
