Literacy skills are the cornerstone upon which students' knowledge, self-esteem, and future educational opportunities are built. But far too many teachers lack the time, materials, and specialized knowledge required to address these skills adequately. To that end, Climbing the Literacy Ladder is a one-stop shop to help teachers plan and differentiate literacy instruction for all students from prekindergarten through 5th grade. Literacy educator Beverly Tyner presents plans for small-group instruction that addresses elementary students' six developmental stages of reading and writing: emergent, beginning, fledgling, transitional, fluent, and independent. To help teachers support students' literacy development, this book also provides - Characteristics of readers and writers at each stage. - Lesson plans that target each of the research-based instructional components (fluency, word study, vocabulary, and comprehension). - Authentic classroom scenarios and conversations. - Practical classroom strategies and activities. - Advice for when to move students to the next stage. If students cannot read with comprehension by 3rd grade, then their educational future is cast in doubt. Climbing the Literacy Ladder will not only help you grow as a competent and empowered literacy teacher but also ensure that your students continue to travel a clear and unobstructed educational road. This book is a co-publication of ASCD and ILA.

Guided Reading is the classroom Reading Recovery with supplements. In the classroom every child is involved in focussed reading instruction, small groups necessitate exceptional organization, all this without the year-long training that Reading Recovery participants have. Over the years teachers have been directed towards Guided Reading without knowledge of how to organize the class while working with small groups and further, without the knowledge of what is involved in overt reading instruction. This book will change that and give teachers the resources to organize and put in place worthwhile and relevant activities for children to independently engage in. In this book, significant suggestions are forwarded to make Guided Reading easier to implement and more effective. This book challenges held views about Guided Reading - misconceptions and misapplications of Guided Reading will be highlighted and in place will be effective pedagogy to help children move towards being truly confident, thinking readers. The teaching practices emphasized are: * Managing differentiated reading instruction for early, developing, early fluent readers, including a chapter relating to older readers. * Class management while working with small groups - independent tasks. * Questioning and prompting so children acquire and use self-help reading and comprehension strategies. * Encouraging student talk where they explore and exchange ideas. * Assessment (and recording) that informs instruction.
