Which Book and Why

Using Book Bands and Book Levels for Guided Reading in Key Stage 1
Author: Sue Bodman,Glen Franklin
Publisher: Inst of Education

Category: Education
Page: 174
View: 8790
We want all children to love reading, and Which Book and Why demonstrates how effective guided reading for children in Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 can help teachers make this happen. Balancing theory and practice, this book explores how schools and teachers can implement guided reading more confidently and more effectively. Which Book and Why draws together the teaching pedagogy underpinning guided reading. The book demonstrates how to develop word-reading skills, reading for meaning, and reading for information. Building on the success and strong foundations of Book Bands for Guided Reading (Baker, Bickler and Bodman, 2007), Which Book and Why: • supports the effective delivery of guided reading for young children in the early stages of learning to read; • helps teachers to choose the right book at the right time, based on focused assessments; • explains how guided reading fits with current theoretical understanding of how children learn; • demonstrates how guided reading works in practice; • outlines how practice may vary, depending on the choice of text, teaching objectives, and the needs of the child; • provides guidance for school subject leaders and senior managers, and for teachers' self-study.Which Book and Why includes in the accompanying CD-ROM a fully searchable database to support schools and teachers in choosing the most appropriate books at the right level for each group in a class. The database includes a full listing of colour-banded titles, including those from recently published series, allowing teachers to use their existing libraries more effectively while also informing decision-making about new resources. In parallel, teachers can search the database for texts that will complement the teaching progression of mainstream phonic programmes, review programmes that are available, and search for a text to consolidate teaching of particular phonemes.Which Book and Why offers professional development resources in each section; self-study activities for teachers – including student teachers, newly qualified teachers, and staff new to guided reading; resources for literacy subject coordinators; and resources for senior management and leadership teams to support the implementation of high-quality and effective guided reading lessons.

One or more chapters are devoted to each of the following: the classification and morphology of galaxies; the galactic interstellar medium; galactic kinematics; elliptical, spiral, and barred spiral galaxies; the interactions between galaxies; extragalactic radio sources, quasars and their line spectra, and other active galactic nuclei; the formation of galaxies; the Universe as a whole; and cosmology.

Generating Genius

Black Boys in Search of Love, Ritual and Schooling
Author: Tony Sewell
Publisher: Trentham Books Limited
ISBN: 9781858563688
Category: Education
Page: 152
View: 6127
The new Black boy has become the billboard for corporate industry to sell the world new toys--but he's not wanted in the boardroom. This radical book shows how Black masculinity is accepted in certain ways but rejected in others, so challenging much mainstream thinking on the achievement of Black boys at school. It argues that these boys are in search of a road map to successfully navigate not only the schooling process but also the complexities of Black adolescence. This positive and empowering text looks far beyond the notion that institutional racism is responsible for low attainment at school. Instead it explores the complexities surrounding masculinities and argues that Black boys, like all young males, share instincts of sex and violence and that these instincts need a framework of love, ritual, and schooling to transform them into a positive force. Tony Sewell brings a creative approach to developing a road map for Black boys. Drawing on new research from Britain and America, he sets out strategies for schools that support teachers but also teach Black boys how to succeed in a system that seems to work against them. He doesn't quite let teachers off the hook, nor does he deny the reality of racism and its impact on boys' lives. What makes this book indispensable in schools is the key strategies he outlines for schools and teachers to cultivate the genius within their students--and this, he argues, can only be done if Black boys are helped to grow a skin not of resistance but of resilience.
