Intergenerational Mobility: A Study of Social Classes in India
Discrimination and exclusion in the process of capability formation and the labor market transcend the boundaries of the current generation and spill over to successive generations as well. Though a plethora of work has been done at the international level, the area has not been the focus of Indian economic research despite social exclusion and disparity having been quite substantial in India, especially the division along caste lines. The book addresses this research gap and explores the issue of intergenerational mobility across different social classes in the Indian context, analyzing the spheres of both education and occupation. We contend that parental education and occupation have a significantly greater impact on educational attainment and occupational choice for socially excluded groups compared to the advanced groups. In the labor market, intergenerational mobility is low and most of it is lateral and not vertical, increasing the possibility of discrimination in the labor market. This book highlights the fact that the long history of social exclusion has had a lasting effect and it is very difficult to come out of this inertia.

The Phonology Factor: Creating Balance with Beginning Readers
Every teacher knows that some children fail to learn to read in literature-based, meaning-centered classrooms.For these children, something is clearly missing...but what? Nadine Pedron and Susan Brown believe that the answer to this question is balance, made possible by explicit instruction in phonological awareness. In The Phonology Factor they show how teachers can help all children become proficient readers and writers by integrating critical phonological awareness skills into a language arts curriculum that focuses on rich, meaningful literary experiences. The practical, classroom-piloted strategies presented in this book are more effective than traditional phonics instruction, and include techniques that can be used with younger students who are at risk of failing to learn to read as well as with older students still struggling to achieve literacy.

Phonological Awareness and Primary Phonics

The book is a brief, practical guide for teachers who want or have to teach phonics. Phonological awareness and phonics are integrated so that the foundation of phonological awareness prepares students for phonics and makes the 2 areas reciprocal. In work with struggling readers, Dr. Gunning developed a system to build on what students know and teach them to analyze words independently. He also found that students need a lot of practice to become effective readers.

Phonological Awareness and Primary Phonics is a practical resource manual designed to provide step by step suggestions for assessing and instructing students in grades K-2 in phonological or phonemic awareness and phonics skills and strategies. This book provides an overview of phonological awareness and phonics, but goes far beyond that to present virtually everything a teacher might need in order to implement a high-quality, effective word analysis program.

Road to Reading: A Program for Preventing and Remediating Reading Difficulties
This literacy program for students in grades 1-4 picks up where Road to the Code leaves off. It includes 6 levels that increase in complexity and targets the following skills: phonological awareness, word identification, oral reading, and dictation.Synopsis - This is a supplementary curriculum that has also been used as the primary reading program for classes in which many students are experiencing reading difficulty. There are six levels to this field-tested and validated program, each increasing in complexity from the one before it: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple. Within each level there are five steps that each lesson follows: review of sound/symbol associations, practice making words, review of previously learned decodable words and high frequency words, oral reading, and dictation. This is referred to as the 5-Step Plan. This program was developed to help children who are struggling with reading in grades 1-4, and takes about 30 to 40 minutes per day. It can be used for Tier I, Tier II, or Tier III kids and in small groups or one-to-one. Road to Reading Success can be used with any core reading program. The words that the authors use were chosen from a review of basal reading programs and from Fry and Kress' The Reading Teacher's Book of Lists , which is a popular teacher resource. On the accompanying CD there are materials needed to implement the lessons, including lesson plans, word cards, and assessment forms.

Infotext: Reading and Learning
When students encounter difficulties while reading textbooks, their first instinct is often to blame themselves - and their lack of reading proficiency. But the problems often have nothing to do with them. In this revised and expanded edition of her classic Infotext: Reading and Learning, Karen Feathers explains why infotexts - the textbooks, manuals, magazines, Web sites, and so on that we read for information - often present problems, even for proficient readers. By drawing on both traditional and current research into reading and reading behavior, she then goes on to demonstrate how teachers of content subjects can help students, including English language learners, overcome these problems and learn more effectively. Her practical, classroom-tested suggestions help teachers focus on content and manage curriculum demands, while encouraging students to take control of their own learning by expanding their repertoire of reading strategies.

English-Espanol Reading Inventory for the Classroom

This most successful informal reading inventory has been adapted to meet the strong demand for K-12 teachers to assess Spanish-speaking students in their native tongue. Since it can assess a student's reading competency in Spanish as well as English, this inventory is particularly valuable considering the influx of English as a Second Language (ESL) students and Spanish-speaking students in the public schools. Taking a constructivist approach, the authors combine both traditional and holistic methods to determine a student's reading level. This pragmatic, well-designed inventory can be used in undergraduate/graduate courses dealing with reading remediation, in public schools with Latino populations, and in ESL teacher training programs.

You can find hundreds of literacy lessons in hundreds of places-but none of them will do for students what the ones in this book do. What's the magic bullet? Potent integration. Divided into five weeklong learning sequences, the 50 lessons span the ELA standards, bringing a Monday-through-Friday clarity to the sometimes mysterious process of skill-building through demonstrations and practice.

Phonemic Awareness in Young Children
Phonemic Awareness in Young Children complements any prereading program. From simple listening games to more advanced exercises in rhyming, alliteration, and segmentation, this best-selling curriculum helps boost young learners' preliteracy skills in just 15-20 minutes a day. Specifically targeting phonemic awareness - now known to be an important step to a child's early reading acquisition - this research-based program helps young children learn to distinguish individual sounds that make up words and affect their meanings. With a developmental sequence of activities that follows a school year calendar, teachers can chose from a range of activities for their preschool, kindergarten, and first-grade classrooms. Plus, the curriculum includes an easy-to-use assessment test for screening up to 15 children at a time. This assessment not only helps to objectively estimate the general skill level of the class and identify children who may need additional testing but may also be repeated every 1-2 months to monitor progress. All children benefit because the curriculum accommodates individualized learning and teaching styles. Here is everything a teacher needs: Teaching objectives Lesson plans and sample scripts Activity adaptations Troubleshooting guidelines Suggested kindergarten and first-grade schedules Informal, group screening

Guiding Reading: A Handbook for Teaching Guided Reading at Key Stage 2
Guiding Reading will help all teachers of children in Key Stage 2 understand what is involved in guided reading and will dispel common misunderstandings. In guided reading, children read the texts themselves while the teacher acts as the expert who guides them through the text. This book explains the development of reading processes and preferences in children aged 7 to 11, and gives the rationale for guided reading. It explains clearly what teachers need to do in order to organise their classrooms, their resources and themselves in order to carry out guided reading successfully. The book also provides exemplar lessons - at least four for each year group - that show guided reading in action. Annotated booklists help teachers select the texts that will match their pupils' reading skills and interests. In all, over 400 picture books, short and longer fiction, non-fiction, poetry and other media titles are listed. A section on continuing professional development contains five INSET sessions that will enable the whole school staff to become proficient at using guided reading. The second edition of Guiding Reading has been thoroughly revised and expanded. It is a helpful complement to two further books on guided reading published by the Institute of Education: Book Bands for Guided Reading and Bridging Bands for Guided Reading (which covers the transition from KS1 to KS2). This is an essential handbook for all literacy co-ordinators and an invaluable resource for newly qualified teachers and class teachers.
