Becoming a Teacher of Writing in the Elementary Grades by Donna Kalmbach Phillips; Mindy Legard LarsonBecoming a Teacher of Writing in Elementary Classrooms nurtures teachers¿ identities as writers, connects to the realities of writing instruction in real and diverse classrooms, and encourages critical and creative thinking. This text is about writing instruction as a journey teachers and students embark on together. The focus is on learning how to teach writing through specific teaching and learning structures found in the Writing Studio: mini-lessons; teacher and peer conferencing; guided writing; and sharing, celebrating, and broadcasting writing. Pedagogical features include teaching structures and strategies, "Problematizing Practice" classroom scenarios, assessment resources, and a Companion Website. Because a teacher who views him or herself as a writer is best positioned to implement the Writing Studio, a parallel text, Becoming-writer, give readers space to consider who they are as a writer, their personal process as a writer, and who they might become as a writer.

Struggling Readers by Lori Jamison RogIt is a troubling statistic that a quarter of the students in any grade are reading below grade level. The good news is that it's not too late, even in middle school, to provide the extra instruction that will get the majority of these students back on track. The practical, classroom-tested reading instruction strategies in Struggling Readers are carefully chosen to be effective with students in Grades 3-9. More than band-aid solutions that focus on discrete skills that don't transfer to real reading, this insightful book shows teachers how to give struggling readers what they really need: the opportunity to read texts they can and want to read; explicit instruction in long-term strategies they can use on their own; confidence in themselves as readers, writers, and thinkers. This comprehensive resource is organized around the instructional needs of struggling readers: teaching and texts targeted to their needs the opportunity to read more explicit instruction and guided practice in comprehension strategies * building vocabulary and fluency the ability to read informational and functional texts using writing to make sense of reading The lesson routines are specifically designed for small-group work, but are adaptable to whole-class or individualized learning. Struggling Readers is a valuable resource that will help teachers use guided reading strategies from the early grades to reach those students still struggling with reading basics.
