  1. Worth Writing About: Exploring Memoir with Adolescents

    'Who am I?' In Worth Writing About: Exploring Memoir with Adolescents, Wizner addresses how searching for the answer to this question leads his students to reflection, to reading and to deeper, more meaningful writing. Worth Writing About addresses the most common challenges teachers face when teaching memoir writing: How do you help students who say that nothing interesting has happened in their lives? How do you help students balance what is meaningful with what is too personal to share? How do you help students overcome the 'I don't remember' syndrome? The memoir unit gets kids to write about real stuff - the things that matter to them. In the process they learn more about themselves, their relationships, the way they view the world and how they want to move forward into the future.

  2. The Construction Zone: Building Scaffolds for Readers and Writers

    Instructional scaffolding is an essential part of teaching literacy. But what is scaffolding exactly? In essence, scaffolding is the support of students as they build independence. In The Construction Zone, Terry Thompson identifies four critical processes to deepen your understanding and improve your practice of instructional scaffolding. Thompson encourages teachers to enhance their use of the traditional gradual release process through five actionable steps: shows, share, support, sustain and survey, and in doing so provides procedures and techniques to help them establish and maintain strong scaffolds throughout the instructional day. Thompson urges educators to fully embrace their role in the scaffolding process while staying mindful of the effect it has on students.

  3. Adventures in Graphica: Using Comics and Graphic Novels to Teach Comprehension, 2-6

    Comic books and graphic novels, known collectively as 'graphica', have long been popular with teenagers and adults. Recently, graphica has grown in popularity with younger readers as well, motivating and engaging reluctant readers who often shun traditional texts. While some teachers have become curious about graphica's potential, many remain confused by the number of new titles and series available and unsure of its suitability and function in their classrooms. Drawing on recent research and his own success using graphica with primary readers, literacy coach Terry Thompson helps teachers navigate this medium and shows how teaching with graphica fits into literacy frameworks and correlates with best practices in comprehension, vocabulary and fluency instruction.

  4. The CAFE Book: Engaging All Students in Daily Literacy Assessment & Instruction

    CAFE is an acronym for Comprehension, Accuracy, Fluency and Expand vocabulary. The system includes goal-setting with students, posting of goals on a whole-class board, developing small-group instruction based on clusters of students with similar goals and focusing whole-class instruction on emerging student needs. The CAFE system does not require expensive materials, complicated training or complete changes to current classroom literacy approaches. Rather, it provides a structure for conferring with students, a language for talking about reading development and a system for tracking growth and fostering student independence. The CAFE system's built-in flexibility lets teachers tailor the system to reflect the needs of their students and their curriculum standards.

  5. Spelling K-8: Planning and Teaching

    Spelling K-8 meets the needs of schools and districts that want to put systematic teaching place without compromising the principles of constructivist learning. Recognising the professional expertise of classroom teachers, the authors consistently urge teachers to consider the suggested plan in relation to their children's spelling needs. Children are actively engaged in spelling explorations, being guided by their teachers, forming generalisations that reflect their current understanding about how written English works. Specific suggestions are also offered for children whose first language is not English. Spelling K-8 addresses the issues that administrators and parents are concerned about and offers teachers a wealth of strategies and resources to draw on.
