Download or read book Still Learning to Read written by Franki Sibberson and published by Stenhouse Publishers. This book was released on 2016-08-28 with total page pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Foreword by Colby Sharp In the decade since the first edition of Still Learning to Read was published, the prevalence of testing and the Common Core State Standards have changed what is expected of both teachers and students. The new edition of Still Learning to Read focuses on the needs of students in grades 3-6 in all aspects of reading workshop, including reading workshop, read-aloud, classroom design, digital tools, fiction, nonfiction, and close reading. The book stays true to its original beliefs of slowing down and knowing our readers, but it also takes into account the sense of urgency that changing times and standards impose on classrooms. This edition examines current trends in literacy, includes a new section on intentional instructional planning, and provides expanded examples of mini-lessons and routines that promote deeper thinking about learning. It also includes a brand new chapter on scaffolding for reading nonfiction and showcases the authors' latest thinking on close reading and text complexity. Online videos provide glimpses into classrooms as students make book choices, work in small groups, and discuss their reading notebooks. Expanded and updated book lists, recommendations for digital tools, lesson cycles, and sections specifically written for school leaders round out this foundational resource.

Download or read book New Directions in Assessing Historical Thinking written by Kadriye Ercikan and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2015-02-20 with total page 284 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: New technologies have radically transformed our relationship to information in general and to little bits of information in particular. The assessment of history learning, which for a century has valued those little bits as the centerpiece of its practice, now faces not only an unprecedented glut but a disconnect with what is valued in history education. More complex processes—historical thinking, historical consciousness or historical sense making—demand more complex assessments. At the same time, advances in scholarship on assessment open up new possibilities. For this volume, Kadriye Ercikan and Peter Seixas have assembled an international array of experts who have, collectively, moved the fields of history education and assessment forward. Their various approaches negotiate the sometimes-conflicting demands of theoretical sophistication, empirically demonstrated validity and practical efficiency. Key issues include articulating the cognitive goals of history education, the relationship between content and procedural knowledge, the impact of students’ language literacy on history assessments, and methods of validation in both large scale and classroom assessments. New Directions in Assessing Historical Thinking is a critical, research-oriented resource that will advance the conceptualization, design and validation of the next generation of history assessments.

Download or read book Reading and Reader Development written by Judith Elkin and published by Facet Pub. This book was released on 2003 with total page 241 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Reader development focuses on readers rather than reading skills. The purposes of reader development are to enhance the reading experience, to make it a more pleasurable and creative act for the reader; to increase people's confidence in their reading; and to make reading a more communal activity by bringing readers together to share their experiences. The focus of reader development is pleasure reading, which the authors interpret as reading fiction. They observe that public libraries were not at the forefront of this movement, but librarians are responding by changing library culture to focus on readers rather than books. The ways in which librarians responded and additional responses they could undertake are described within the context of the broader social movements in the United Kingdom to promote reader development. Three themes dominate the chapters. First, the authors tirelessly celebrate reading. Reading is good. Reading will make one happy. Reading elevates. The second theme is opportunism. If society is paying attention to reading, librarians should get on board and seize the opportunity to build their status and to secure the place of libraries as critically important institutions. The third theme is social inclusiveness. Librarians should always keep in mind the political dimensions of public library service and assure that all sectors of the populations share in the benefits of library service. Readers in search of guidance concerning what librarians should do will find plenty of that here. (EDITOR).

Download or read book Reference and Information Services written by Richard E. Bopp and published by ABC-CLIO. This book was released on 2011 with total page 743 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Reflecting the dramatic changes shaped by rapidly developing technologies over the past six years, this new fourth edition of "Reference and Information Services" takes the introduction to reference sources and services significantly beyond the content of the first three editions. In Part I, Concepts and Processes, chapters have been revised and updated to reflect new ideas and methods in the provision of reference service in an era when many users have access to the Web. In Part II, "Information Sources and Their Use," discussion of each source type has been updated to encompass key resources in print and on the Web, where an increasing number of freely available sources join those purchased or licensed by libraries. A number of new authors are contributors to this new edition, bringing to their chapters their experience as teachers of reference and as practitioners in different types of libraries. Discussions of services in Part I integrate digital reference as appropriate to each topic, such as how to conduct a reference interview online using instant messaging. Boxes interspersed in the text are used to present scenarios for discussion, to highlight key concepts, or to present excerpts from important documents. Discussions of sources in Part II place more emphasis on designing effective search strategies using both print and digital resources. The chapter on selection and evaluation of sources addresses the changing nature of reference collections and how to evaluate new types of sources. Each chapter concludes with an updated list of additional readings to guide further study. A new companion website will provide links to Web-accessible readings and resources as well as additional scenarios for discussion and example search strategies to supplement those presented in the text.
