Young Adult Nonfiction: Gateway to the Common Core
No matter the location, schools are guided by standards, including Common Core State Standards. This collection of contributions by some of the country's leading literacy experts offers practical suggestions for implementing young adult literature to meet the demand that standards mandate for focusing on nonfiction in teaching literacy. The challenges to CCSS abound, and teachers who are currently seeking avenues to reach their students no matter what content they teach will find the strategies and suggestions useful. The text advocates using young adult literature to accomplish content area literacy and is intended as a primer for those who are building curriculum.

Storymaking in Elementary and Middle School Classrooms: Constructing and Interpreting Narrative Texts
This book examines storymaking processes in K-8 classrooms from a social-semiotic perspective that highlights how participants' discourse influences story construction and interpretation. It is unique in that it invites the reader to actively engage in the analysis of classroom discourse and to consider issues related to storymaking in specific classrooms. Examples of theory in action illustrate important issues regarding text selection and the roles of teachers and students in affecting meaning-making processes. An excellent text for upper-level and graduate courses in language, literacy, and literature education, Storymaking in Elementary and Middle School Classrooms includes: * Transcripts of teacher-student-text discourse in kindergarten, and second-, fifth-, seventh-, and eighth-grade classrooms. * Helpful overviews at the beginning of each chapter. * Theory-into-practice sections at the end of each chapter that pose issues to think about related to classroom practice. * A separate chapter on translating theory into practice in the classroom, with practical suggestions.

Reconceptualizing the Literacies in Adolescents' Lives: Bridging the Everyday/Academic Divide, Third Edition
Like previous editions, the third edition of Reconceptualizing the Literacies in Adolescents' Lives invites middle- and high-school educators to move toward a broad, generative view of adolescent literacies. Recognizing that digital media, social networking phenomena are now central in adolescents' lives, what is different is the focus in this edition on bridging students' everyday literacies and subject matter learning. Four chapters from earlier editions serve as touchstone texts, honoring youth's diverse experiences and illustrating how young people's literacies are enacted, situated, and mediated in various locales; nine new chapters consider how these themes are lived in today's schools and in the rapidly changing world outside of school This edition features heightened attention multimodal meaning construction, more discussion of practical implications of the ideas presented, and co-authored teacher commentaries at the end of each section. A Companion Website, new for this edition, facilitates practical application of the text's key ideas, with discussion questions, and links to instructional activities, blogs, additional readings and viewings, and interactive web pages, and videos.

Do I Really Have to Teach Reading?
Do I really have to teach reading? This is the question many teachers of adolescents are asking, wondering how they can possibly add a new element to an already overloaded curriculum. And most are finding that the answer is yes. If they want their students to learn complex new concepts in different disciplines, they often have to help their students become better readers. Building on the experiences gained in her own language arts classroom as well as those of colleagues in different disciplines, Cris Tovani, author of I Read It, but I Don't Get It, takes on the challenge of helping students apply reading comprehension strategies in any subject. In Do I Really Have to Teach Reading?, Cris shows how teachers can expand on their content expertise to provide instruction students need to understand specific technical and narrative texts. The book includes: examples of how teachers can model their reading process for students;ideas for supplementing and enhancing the use of required textbooks;detailed descriptions of specific strategies taught in context;stories from different high school classrooms to show how reading instruction varies according to content;samples of student work, including both struggling readers and college-bound seniors;a variety of comprehension constructors : guides designed to help students recognize and capture their thinking in writing while reading; guidance on assessing students;tips for balancing content and reading instruction. Cris's humor, honesty, and willingness to share her own struggles as a teacher make this a unique take on content reading instruction that will be valuable to reading teachers as well as content specialists.

Teach Me How to Work and Keep Me Kind offers the content of AP English classes. This book intends to serve as a guide and encouragement to educators by showing what can be possible when a teacher enjoys the freedom to find their own voice. Poems, novels, short stories, essays, and plays become the means to have conversations with young people about love and life, peace and war, virtue and vice, joy and grief. The author/teacher describes creating an environment and curriculum where students could greatly improve their writing skills. He explains the rationale for his presentations and literary selections. Even those who missed a thoughtful introduction to literature the first time around may find a useful beginning in what's presented here. Seeking to engage in the ongoing educational debate in the US, the writer demonstrates how the material presented in these courses can contribute to students' genuine artistic and literary education. These volumes suggest that such reading and writing prepare young people to be good citizens in a democracy. *offers curriculum for AP English classes *explains how to present challenging material to high school students *presents a method to increase students' writing skills *useful as an introduction to literature (for those who missed it) *stresses the value of a humanistic approach to literature *argues against Common Core Curriculum homogenization

Find out all you need to know about mummies. What is a mummy? Where do they come from? Where can you see them? Is there really a mummy's curse? Get the facts. Then read a scary story about the mummy that came back to life: 'The Walking Horror'. This fantastic book features an exciting combination of both fiction and non-fiction. The non-fiction section enables readers to engage with the subject matter, using dramatic illustrations and bite-sized texts. The beautifully illustrated fiction story appears in two formats - short, simple texts for more able readers and an illustrated 'speech bubble' version of the same story, for those who are really struggling. Part of the Trailblazers series, this book is brilliant for keeping reluctant readers engaged.

Second Language Reading Research and Instruction: Crossing the Boundaries
This title presents new research on teaching reading in a second language. Controversy abounds across many aspects of second language reading instruction despite much research on the subject. This volume attempts to bring together the competing perspectives on second language reading research and instruction to tackle these questions: should second language reading instruction be comprehension-oriented, or should it be language-oriented? What types of knowledge and skills are necessary for improving reading comprehension? What elements of language can be learned through reading? Is it possible to integrate grammar training into comprehension training, and if so, how may that be achieved in the classroom?By crossing the boundaries between diverse conceptual and pedagogical practice this volume appeals to second language reading researchers, teachers, curriculum developers, materials writers, and graduate students of second language education interested in reading.
