Arrives in 3-7 Business Days
In Teaching Reading in a Title I School, Nancy Akhavan shows primary teachers why workshops are good for students, even those who struggle, and especially those who are English language learners. Drawing on her experiences as a principal, a reading staff developer, and a teacher, she shows us how teachers use reading and writing workshops successfully.
In Nancy's workshop, students record their thoughts after they read. The process of thinking and writing about their thinking deepens their comprehension of the book and gives them practice with reading and writing strategies. Reading and writing are the work children need to do each day, and this is what happens in the well-designed and well-implemented workshops that Nancy creates.
Using carefully crafted planning tools, lessons, student samples, and graphic organizers, Nancy shows you what constitutes an effective workshop to make the workshop fit seamlessly into your day. She includes effective intervention tools and activities for struggling readers, as well as tips for working with English learners.
With its companion, Teaching Writing in a Title I School, individual teachers, teachers studying together in professional learning communities, and preservice teachers will find the tools they need to build literacy instruction that guides all their students to high achievement.
