  3. Common Core Standards in Diverse Classrooms: Essential Practices for Developing Academic Language and Disciplinary Literacy

    The Common Core State Standards require students to do more with knowledge and language than ever before. Rather than be mere consumers of knowledge, students must now become creators, critics, and communicators of ideas across disciplines. Yet in order to take on these new and exciting roles, many students need daily teaching with an extra emphasis on accelerating their academic communication skills. Common Core Standards in Diverse Classrooms is a concise guide for helping us improve our practices to strengthen two vital pillars that support student learning: academic language and disciplinary literacy.

  4. Teaching Energy Across the Sciences, K-12

    Students may have an idea of what energy means but still lack a full understanding of how it is a part of their everyday lives.

  7. Pose, Wobble, Flow: A Culturally Proactive Approach to Literacy Instruction

    This book proposes a pedagogical model that encapsulates the challenge of teaching and the process of growing as an educator. The authors provide six different culturally proactive teaching stances or 'poses' that secondary English teachers can use to meet the needs of all students. They describe how teachers can expect to 'wobble' as they adapt instruction to their students' needs, while also incorporating new insights about their own preconceptions about teaching. Teachers are encouraged to recognise this flexibility as a positive process or 'flow' that can be used to address challenges and adopt ambitious teaching strategies.

  9. It's Debatable! Using Socioscientific Issues to Develop Scientific Literacy, K-12

    This book encourages scientific literacy by showing you how to teach the understanding and thinking skills your students need to explore real-world questions. Both practical and content-rich, It's Debatable! doesn't shy away from controversy. Instead, the authors encourage you and your students to confront just how messy the questions raised by science (and pseudoscience) can be. At the core of the exploration is the Socioscientific Issues Framework. The framework gives students practice in the research, analysis and argumentation necessary to grapple with difficult questions and build scientific literacy.

  11. Literacy Theory as Practice: Connecting Theory and Instruction in K-12 Classrooms

    This comprehensive textbook introduces readers to the most influential theories and models of reading and literacy, ranging from behaviourism and early information-processing theories to social constructionist and critical theories.
