    I’m listening: How teacher-student relationships improve reading, writing, speaking, and listening debunks the misconception that a teacher can’t offer grades 6-12 students both academic rigour and emotional support. While sharing activities grounded in social-emotional research, author Beth Pandolpho reveals how listening to students’ voices enables them to practice crucial literacy skills and simultaneously build positive, trust-based teacher-student relationships. She guides readers as they foster an environment that is personally welcoming and educationally ambitious. Creating such a caring, engaging classroom provides students the support they need to develop social-emotional skills and to persevere through difficult and demanding coursework.

  6. 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.
