- Small Group Reading Instruction-2nd Edition-A Differentiated Teaching Model for Beginning and Struggling Readers by Beverly Tyner
- To Understand, New Horizons in Reading Comprehension by Ellin Oliver Keene
Keene bases the book around these four key questions:
1. What does it mean to understand?
2. How do we define and teach toward high expectations and high levels of understanding?
3. What matters most in literacy learning?
4. In what ways can we live our adult lives as intellectually curious models for our students and our colleagues?
This is a great book for a book study.
- Teaching With Intention, Defining Beliefs, Aligning Practice, Taking Action by Debbie Miller
Debbie Miller is a joy to read. She is honest and practical, sharing her experiences in a warm and inviting way.
The book is divided into two parts. In the first part, Debbie Miller shares her beliefs about teaching and learning. She invites the reader to define their own beliefs: can you clearly define the principles and practices that guide you and your work with children?
The second part, “Taking Action”, describes what it looks like for her when her practices and beliefs are aligned. Each chapter in this part begins with a belief statement and is followed by application---what it looks like and sounds like---in the classroom.
