@Free Pdf Ä The Art of Teaching Reading ⚛ eBook or E-pub free

I read this for a college class, and I learned so much! It was fun to read, but also very educational I rented my copy, but I'm going to buy one later to use in my classroom as a constant reference to all things writinginstruction. Despite this book being written almost 20 years ago and Reading Instruction has significantly changed since then Her approach to teaching children how to read is still relevant with various tools that can be used in today's classrooms. @Free Pdf ⚹ The Art of Teaching Reading ê Written in Calkins' graceful and passionate style, The Art of Teaching Reading serves as an eloquent and desperately needed reminder of what matters most in teachingIncredibly valuable resource for current and future teachers and educatorsOffers a wealth of practical classroom examples to demonstrate principles and methods in practiceIn The Art of Teaching Reading, nationally acclaimed educator Lucy Calkins offers a compelling glimpse into the methods, insights and daytoday classroom practices which have helped hundreds of teachers do in the teaching of reading than most dreamt possible This is the story of brilliant teachers whose children learn to read with eagerness and to talk and write in stunning ways about their reading Full of inspirational classroom stories, The Art of Teaching Reading is even powerful when one considers that the methods Calkins describes are transforming teaching practices across the largest school district in the worldLucy Calkins is a Professor of Curriculum and Teaching at Teachers College, Columbia University, and an acclaimed speaker, with frequent keynote addresses at conferences across the country Lucy Calkins is a celebrity for us English teachers, so this book is a mustread.This is a big book full of comprehensive stories with a lot of what we did right and what we did wrong I love that it's based on observations with students, conversations with students and teachers and on students' work It's very real I do wish, however, that there were a lothere's exactly how to do it lists, but Calkins purposely, again and again, did not include them because she didn't want to be too prescriptive I do, partially understand, and regardless, recommend this book wholeheartedly. Published in 1986, Calkins' text on writing/writers workshop became a seminal text for teachers And then almost 10 years ago, NCLB was enacted, and writers workshop became a quaint teaching strategy that had no relevance in the world of high stakes testing IMHO Calkins and Atwell should be required reading for all preservice teachers Calkins' text is just as fresh 25 years after its original publication as it was when it was first published Reading The Art of Teaching Writing, I was reminded that good teaching and not test prep is what will bring up my students' test scores and make them lifelong readers and writers. How could I not give this book 5 stars when it's based on Lucy Calkins research and expertise? All kidding aside, this is an EXCELLENT reference book for teachers of reading in elementary or middle grades If you have never had the privilege to hear Lucy speak or to be trained by her amazing Teacher's College staff, this book is the next best thing It does a great job of explaining the WHY behind the reading workshop model and HOW to set it up in your classroom From there, she shows you how to confer with students and take that formative data to structure reteaching or guided reading groups She gives you prompts, questions, and activities to do with your students as you confer and run small groups There are chapters on structuring mini lessons, read alouds,and book clubs And throughout it all, Calkins suggests hundreds of mentor texts and read aloud texts to use in your workshop The last few chapters do focus heavily on early elementary workshops showing you how to structure specific lessons on fluency, phonics, and choosing just right books However, teachers of older readers shouldn't easily dismiss them as they could apply to some of the emerging or struggling readers that could come through your classrooms And at the end, are several appendicies full of lists and leveled groups of books and magazines to use in your own workshops Even those who have been trained by the TCRWP will find this text as a useful reference guide As a specialist now working with staff who have not been trained in this methodology, I will be using this in my coteaching and coaching roles. Wish I had read this book YEARS ago! Although this book was written well after I graduated from college, I can't help feeling cheated of the best practices that this book advocates for in our schools That is why, as professionals, if we fail to continuously learn and keep abreast of the latest that research has to offer, then we fail as educators I have been reading and trying to follow the practices of the many excellent educators from Teacher's College, but this book seems to be at the foundation of it all Nothing replaces the passion, the practicality, the ease of exposition that Lucy Calkins inspires. This book has very sound philosophy in teaching writing and teaching in general, but really did not provide me with enough practical stuff that I could implement in my classroom right away I thought it was mostly discussion of what should be done and not enough of here's how you do it That's really what I look for in education books. I read this while I was in high school and my parents were taking teaching credentialing classes Until I read this book, I hated writing After I read it, I filled notebook after notebook with writing and learned to love school essays Yes, it is a book for teachers, but Calkins made me feel how exciting writing can be. Took me three months to read it, but I finally did The last chapter made me cry How often can you say that of a textbook? I love you Lucy!
