101 WORDS YOUR CHILD WILL READ BY THE END OF GRADE 1

$14.95
Given encouragement, kids enjoy reading because they accept the challenge to read as one more fun game to play. This book assists parents in giving their child extra help in reading. It begins with a list of 101 "non-decodable" words--that is, words that cannot be sounded out because they don't follow basic phonetic rules. Among them are words such as laugh, through, walk, would, and others containing letters that are not pronounced. The author advises parents on how to teach children to recognize these and other "non-decodable" words. Next, parents get tips on teaching phonetic rules that enable children to sound out "decodable" words, which are the majority of words they will encounter as beginning readers. Chapters that follow feature practice activities, games, and projects, all focused to enhance children's reading skills. Answer keys appear at the back of the book. The accompanying CD-ROM features games and activities that will help boys and girls learn to read.

200 WORDS YOUR CHILD WILL READ BY THE END OF GRADE 2

Most parents know that a good reader is nearly always a high-achieving student. This book and CD-ROM combination--a follow-up to Barron's 101 Words Your Child Will Read by the End of Grade 1--advises parents on the many ways they can help their second grader improve his or her reading fluency. Transforming reading into an enjoyable activity is fundamental to helping a child progress.

Beginning readers will see them in phrases and sentences they can comprehend. Kids will enjoy progressing through this book's pages, moving from one fun game and activity to another as their reading confidence grows. The author also offers detailed advice to parents on what they can do to focus their child's efforts toward developing reading skills. The accompanying CD-ROM provides more games and activities, using each of the word groups presented in the book. The words appear in the context of a story, and are reinforced through a series of fun activities that include word finds, fill-in-the-blanks, and story sequencing.

AMERICAS BLACK FOUNDERS: REVOLUTIONARY HEROES & EARLY LEADERS WITH 2

$16.95
History books are replete with heroic stories of Washington, Jefferson, and Adams, but what of Allen, Russwurm, and Hawley? America’s Black Founders celebrates the lesser known but significant lives and contributions of our nation’s early African American leaders. Many know that the Revolutionary War’s first martyr, Crispus Attucks, a dockworker of African descent, was killed at the Boston Massacre. But far fewer know that the final conflict of the war, the Battle of Yorktown, was hastened to a conclusion by James Armistead Lafayette, a slave and spy who reported the battle plans of General Cornwallis to George Washington.
 
Author Nancy Sanders weaves the histories of dozens of men and women—soldiers, sailors, ministers, poets, merchants, doctors, and other community leaders—who have earned proper recognition among the founders of the United States of America. To get a better sense of what these individuals accomplished and the times in which they lived, readers will celebrate Constitution Day, cook colonial foods, publish a newspaper, petition their government, and more. This valuable resource also includes a time line of significant events, a list of historic sites to visit or explore online, and Web resources for further study.

AN ADMINISTRATORS GUIDE TO BETTER TEACHER MENTORING

$43.95
This book address a major gap in the current mentoring programs at the secondary level. Staff development resources are often concentrated on helping new teachers be successful in their early school experience. Yes, a good idea, but a limited vision. Meanwhile many veteran teachers go without the mentoring assistance they need to be effective classroom teachers. While a few become mentors themselves, many veteran teachers just settle, slowly giving up, and become at risk of failure, burnout, and thinking only of retirement. This book is a call to school superintendents, building administrators, department chairs, school board members, union leaders, parent leaders, and teacher educators to address the need to provide ongoing mentoring for all teachers.

APPRENTICESHIP IN LITERACY (P)

$27.50

This easy-to-read text will guide K-3 teachers as they develop a reading and writing program for all their students. An apprenticeship approach to literacy emphasizes the role of the teacher in providing demonstrations, engaging children, monitoring their understanding, providing timely support and, ultimately, withdrawing that support as the child gains independence.

Drawing on authentic classroom examples—student writing samples, class schedules, photographs, and rich transcriptions of teaching and learning interactions—the authors illustrate instruction that is aimed at children's learning zones. As children become more competent readers and writers, the instructional interactions are adjusted to accommodate their higher-level learning.

Here is a wealth of in-depth information, specific strategies, and organizational formats in literacy areas such as:

  • principles of apprenticeship literacy;
  • learning to read from a cognitive apprenticeship approach, including the roles of read-aloud, familiar reading, and shared reading;
  • guided reading, including flexible grouping, reading and writing links, and instructional interactions that emphasize problem-solving strategies;
  • helping children develop writing strategies through interactive writing, writing aloud, and revising and editing transactions;
  • transitions in children's independent writing, including their relationship to modeling and coaching demonstrations during assisted writing;
  • helping children acquire phonological knowledge, including activities that guide children in manipulating letters, sounds, and spelling patterns;
  • a typical day of putting it all together in two apprenticeship settings: a first-grade classroom and a Title I reading program;
  • using school-based professional literacy teams to support teachers in developing an effective literacy program for their children.

No detail is lost. The authors also cover such practical matters as establishing routines and organizing the classroom environment, including rotation schedules for meeting with small groups of children, lists of materials for establishing literacy corners, and literacy corner activities designed to provide the children with opportunities for independent practice.

With Apprenticeship in Literacy you can achieve a balanced literacy program that works for all your students.

APPROACHES TO TEACHING (P)

$24.99
This popular text continues using the format of the three approaches--The Executive, The Facilitator, and The Liberationist. For the Fifth Edition, the authors add four new case studies: ''Scripted Teaching,'' ''Accountability and Merit,'' ''What is the Value of Caring Relationships?'' and ''School Funding.'' Using these and other realistic case studies, they explore the strengths and weaknesses of each approach so that teachers can critically assess their own philosophical positions on teaching. Teachers are urged to ask themselves such questions as: What is the main goal of teaching? What is the most important purpose of education? What do I expect my students to eventually become? Is the way I structure my teaching influenced by how I view my role and goals? This updated edition also adds a new section called ''Topics and Resources'' to encourage further inquiry into teaching.


Approaches to Teaching is one of the five books in the highly regarded Teachers College Press THINKING ABOUT EDUCATION SERIES, now in its Fifth Edition. All of the books in this series are designed to help pre- and in-service teachers bridge the gap between theory and practice.
