Teaching Reading in a Title I School, K-3 / Edition 1 available in Paperback
- Pub. Date:
When linguistic diversity meets poverty in a Title I school, teaching reading can seem like an impossible task. It doesn't have to be, but you've got to be focused - on the children, on the standards, and on your own teaching. The Title I Teacher's Guide to Teaching Reading, K - 3 offers classroom-tested solutions to the unique challenges of Title I schools. You'll find methods for teaching reading that improve student performance without resorting to prescriptive interventions while meeting important state standards and successfully addressing funding-dependent federal mandates.
In The Title I Teacher's Guide to Teaching Reading, K - 3, Nancy Akhavan, a Title I principal, takes a pragmatic, goal-oriented approach to meeting reading benchmarks. She illustrates instruction that looks beyond the government's free-lunch label to see exciting possibilities for every child, showing how:
- reading workshop and units of study can augment or supplement - yet not supplant - a textbook and improve children's reading
- meaningful instructional routines foster good reading habits in students who don't come from homes with strong models of literacy
- strategy-based instruction gives students the tools to move toward independence
- careful scaffolding can help English learners raise their achievement
- well-planned, well-sequenced instruction makes it easier for teachers to document their activities for administrators.
Throughout, Akhavan's encouraging, practical advice focuses on what's really important in helping struggling students, on finding doable solutions to instructional problems, and on connecting your professional learning to your students' learning.
You understand the obstacles, hurdles, and hoops of teaching in Title I classrooms. Now learn how to overcome them. Read The Title I Teacher's Guide to Teaching Reading, K - 3 and take the advice of a Title I veteran. You'll find proven ways to help your students grow into lifelong readers and to help your school exceed expectations.
