My bible for teaching reading when I first started Very comprehensive, but not a cover to cover read Teaching reading has changed a lot in the past 10 years and there are some great, newer resources out there. A must read for building a strong guided reading program in the classroom. This was probably one of the most helpful books I have ever read in the area of teaching ELA I m glad I have my own copy so I can revisit my highlights and notes. Amazing book It has tons of resources for teachers, it is my go to book for the past ten years If you want to go from good to great these strategies can help take you there. .Free ♃ Guiding Readers and Writers: Teaching Comprehension, Genre, and Content Literacy ♌ Authors Irene Fountas and Gay Su Pinnell have already helped hundreds of thousands of Kteachers engage, inform, and inspire early readers and writers Now, with Guiding Readers and Writers Grades , Fountas and Pinnell support teachers on the next leg of the literacy journey, addressing the unique challenges of teaching upper elementary students The product of many years of work with classroom teachers, Guiding Readers and Writers Gradesis one of the most comprehensive, authoritative guides available today It explores all the essential components of a quality literacy program in six separate sections Breakthrough to Literacy Fountas and Pinnell present the basic structure of the language literacy program within a breakthrough framework that encompasses the building of community through language, word study, reading, writing, and the visual arts The framework plays out as three blocks, which can be interpreted as conceptual units as well as segments of time within the school day Specific information on how to structure a reading and writing workshop is provided A practical chapter on organizing and managing the classroom will help you implement the principles in your own classroomIndependent Reading It is essential for students to develop interests and tastes as readers, selecting books for themselves every day Fountas and Pinnell devote four chapters to independent reading, exploring how to structure teaching, minilessons, conferences, groupshare, and ways to use response journals as part of a reading workshopGuided Reading The chapters in this section provide detailed information on planning for guided reading, dynamic grouping for effective teaching, and selecting, introducing, and using leveled texts Fountas and Pinnell describe characteristics of texts related to difficulty and ways to organize texts in your classroom and schoolLiterature Study This section of the book discusses how to make students experiences with literature as rich as possible The authors offer specific suggestions for forming groups, guiding student choices, and establishing and teaching routines for literature discussion A full chapter explores reader response and ways to help readers dig deep to uncover the meaning of textsTeaching for Comprehension and Word Analysis This detailed look at the reading process explores both oral and silent reading, processes and behaviors related to comprehension, and ways to help students construct meaning Included are twelve systems for sustaining the reading process and expanding meaning, plus discussions of the important areas of phonics, spelling, and vocabularyThe Reading and Writing Connection These chapters showcase the instructional contexts poetry, writer s notebooks, writer s talks, genre, content literacy, and student research that support students in connected reading and writing An informative overview of the characteristics of fiction and nonfiction will help you teach students to read and write a variety of genre What s , the authors suggest ways to help students learn the genre of testing and perform the kinds of reading and writing tasks that tests require They also detail the continuous thoughtful assessment that guides all aspects of effective teachingA special feature appears at the end of each section, in which Fountas and Pinnell provide indispensable suggestions for working with struggling readers and writers This is definitely the best book on reading and writing instruction that I have ever come across It s perfect for what I am teaching this year It s the ideal book for someone who is looking to maximize Reading Workshop and or Writing Workshop in their classroom The book is full of useful, relevant suggestions for teaching and includes so many helpful resources such as graphic organizers, forms for conferencing , etc I recommend this to anyone who teaches literacy.
