Reading To Learn For Els. Gaining knowledge from informational texts is an essential academic skill. Yet for too many English Learners, this skill is not developed sufficiently and as they move from elementary into middle school, the reading gap becomes a knowledge gap. This doesn't have to happen, researcher Ana Taboada Barber explains, if we support EL's reading of informational texts by pairing motivation practices with explicit reading comprehension instruction. Taboada Barber shows us that "When we make motivation part of reading instruction, we show ELs that education is about identity and agency; we acknowledge who they are right now and invite them to grow through and by reading. The comprehension strategies and motivational practices discussed in this book help us identify tools to use with informational texts that foster curiosity rather than frustration." In Reading to Learn for ELs, Taboada Barber provides models of her instructional framework for reading informational texts so that reading teachers, content-area teachers, and ESL teachers alike can take on the work of teaching English Learners how to succeed and gain knowledge through reading informational texts.

Making Facts Matter. There is little doubt that this is a book to which I shall return many times. It genuinely does enrich its readers' understanding' -"Times Educational Supplement " 'Warmly recommended for teachers and essential for the primary school library or staffroom' - "School Librarian "'This is an illuminated and wise book, providing a convincing picture of the nature of primary school children and their work' - "International Review of Children's Literature and Librarianship " This book provides a sound theoretical base, as well as practical examples, on the use and enjoyment of non-fiction books in the classroom. Drawing on research studies from psychology and linguistics, the author brings together what is known about how children learn to read. She relates this specifically to how young readers become able to meet the demands of different kinds of non-fiction texts. She then shows how teachers can support children in becoming readers of non-fiction.

Who S Doing The Work . In their follow-up to Reading Wellness, Jan Burkins and Kim Yaris explore how some traditional scaffolding practices may actually rob students of important learning opportunities and independence. Who's Doing the Work? suggests ways to make small but powerful adjustments to instruction that hold students accountable for their own learning. Educators everywhere are concerned about students whose reading development inexplicably plateaus, as well as those who face challenging texts without applying the strategies they've been taught. When such problems arise, our instinct is to do more. But when we summarize text before reading or guide students when they encounter difficult words, are we leading them to depend on our support? If we want students to use strategies independently, Jan and Kim believe that we must question the ways our scaffolding is getting in the way. Next generation reading instruction is responsive to students' needs, and it develops readers who can integrate reading strategies without prompting from instructors. In Who's Doing The Work?, Jan and Kim examine how instructional mainstays such as read-aloud, shared reading, guided reading, and independent reading look in classrooms where students do more of the work. Classroom snapshots at the end of each chapter help translate the ideas in the book into practice. Who's Doing the Work? offers a vision for adjusting reading instruction to better align with the goal of creating independent, proficient, and joyful readers.
