  6. I'm Listening: How Teacher-Student Relationships Improve Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening

    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.

  7. Building Basic Vocabulary: Tracking My Progress

    Direct vocabulary instruction is crucial for student success. In this resource, students learn and practice Robert J Marzano’s 2845 basic (or tier one) vocabulary terms and 2889 challenge (or tier two) terms. Students can often infer the general meaning of a term by examining other terms related to it. Here, the terms are presented in 420 semantic clusters to facilitate connections between new terms and those that students already know. Using this resource, students can determine which words they know well, which words they recognise but don’t know, and which words are new to them. As students move through the clusters, journaling their learning and tracking their progress, they will experience the satisfaction of acquiring new knowledge and enhancing what they already know.

  10. 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.

Using the guiding principles from Peter Johnston’s bestselling professional resources, Choice Words and Opening Minds, Peter and six colleagues began a journey to create just such classrooms - environments in which children meaningfully engage with each other through reading, writing, making and discussing books. In Engaging Literate Minds, you’ll discover how these teachers struggled and succeeded in building such classrooms.
