Powerful Book Introductions: Leading with Meaning for Deeper Thinking
Effective book introductions during guided reading set the stage for young readers to navigate new texts independently and successfully and often shape the outcome of small-group lessons. Many teachers grapple with what introductions might address, what to include, and how to conduct them.
In Powerful Book Introductions literacy leaders Kathleen Fay, Chrisie Moritz, and Suzanne Whaley speak to these concerns by taking a close look at the purposeful planning that goes into preparing for this small but vital part of today’s guided reading lessons.
Through relatable classroom examples and the wisdom of their shared teaching experiences, the authors show you how to:
- select texts for your small-group lessons specifically based on your students’ needs;
- amplify meaning-making from the first moments of your guided reading book introductions and maintain this emphasis through discussion;
- introduce visual and structural information as a way to support your readers in meaning-making.
Beat Boredom: Engaging Tuned-Out Teenagers
Are your students bored in class? According to research, a majority of American high school students report being bored in class and fewer than 5% claimed that they were rarely bored during a typical day in school.
Former journalist and veteran teacher Martha Rush decided this would not do for her Minnesota students. Moving beyond asking open-ended questions and making connections to their own lives, Martha began to engage her government, journalism, and economics classes in meaty discussions, competitions, simulations, and authentic work, like running a newspaper or starting a business.
Building on her survey of more than 800 high school graduates, she offers up strategies in all subject areas for active engagement, moving way beyond traditional passive memorization of information. She describes how to create innovative experiences in your classroom, and shares her own lessons and her students’ work. Beat Boredom will help you join the ranks of teachers who have challenged the status quo and found ways to motivate even the most reluctant learners.Learn MoreA$32.95
