  8. Readers Front and Centre: Helping All Students Engage with Complex Texts

    Every teacher wants and expects their students to be reading increasingly complex texts, yet sometimes the gap between our expectations and our students' abilities seems wide and deep. It's tempting to look at that gap and step in to fill it for them, but then we'd be doing most of the "heavy lifting" - the understanding, analysis and interpretation that our students should be learning for themselves. Readers Front and Centre is an attempt to help teachers help their students take on identities as learners. Filled with examples of one-on-one conferences, small groups and whole-class scenarios, this essential book provides an accessible and inspiring model of how - and why - we need to put students at the front and centre of our teaching.

  11. Super Spellers: Seven Steps to Transforming Your Spelling Instruction

    Super Spellers is an approach to teaching spelling in a way that is research-based, focused, developmentally appropriate, and tied to authentic reading and writing. This book does not advocate for adopting a new "spelling program"; instead it shows you how to transform what you're already doing. It makes spelling instruction approachable and completely doable. Super Spellers first helps teachers understand what their students need through frequent formative assessments. The book then focuses on the scope of spelling instruction and goes deeper into teaching more words and directly teaching spelling strategies to increase students' word-solving skills. Once kids are comfortable and competent spellers they become super readers and writers, too.
