  1. 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. Focusing on how these theories connect with different curricular approaches to literacy instruction (preschool to Year 12), the author shows how they both shape and are shaped by everyday literacy practices in classrooms. Readers are invited to explore detailed vignettes that offer a practice-based view of theories as they are brought to life in the classroom. This book devotes substantial attention to linguistically and culturally diverse classrooms and 21st-century technologies.

  11. Beyond the Five-Paragraph Essay

    Love it or hate it, the five-paragraph essay is perhaps the most frequently taught form of writing in classrooms of yesterday and today. But have you ever actually seen a five-paragraph essay outside of school walls? Kimberly Hill Campbell and Kristi Latimer reviewed the research on the effectiveness of the form as a teaching tool and discovered that the research does not support the five-paragraph formula. In fact, it shows that the formula restricts creativity, emphasises structure rather than content, does not improve standardised test scores, inadequately prepares students for tertiary education and results in vapid writing. Beyond the Five-Paragraph Essay, will show you how to reclaim the literary essay and create a program that encourages thoughtful writing in response to literature.

  12. A Close Look at Close Reading: Teaching Students to Analyze Complex Texts, Grades 6-12

    While middle years and secondary school teachers want and need students to connect with, analyse and learn from both literary and informational texts, many are unsure how to foster the skills students must have in order to develop deep and nuanced understanding of complicated content. Barbara Moss, Diane Lapp, Maria Grant and Kelly Johnson explain how to teach middle years and secondary school to be close readers, how to make close reading a habit of practice across the content areas and why doing so will build content knowledge. Equipping students with the tools and process of close reading sets them on the road to becoming analytical and critical thinkers - and empowered and independent learners. In this comprehensive resource, you'll find everything you need to start their journey.
