Transforming Literacy Teaching in the Era of Higher Standards
"In this comprehensive resource, master teacher Maria Walther describes the teaching shifts needed to help students meet the rigorous demands of the new standards, showing teachers how they can build upon good practice already in place and take it up a notch to address higher standards. With charts highlighting changes, sample lessons that take instruction to the next level, and plenty of practical tips and how-to’s, this will be a welcome companion for any teacher working with rigorous standards."
Literature is Back
"Organized by genre, this book places quality children's literature at the heart of literacy teaching. The authors define each genre and its values for use with students; identify exemplary texts; and provide practical, engaging research-based lessons that teach specific literacy strategies and skills to both primary and intermediate grade students."
