Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
For Elementary and Middle School Literacy Methods courses. Based on the same principles and guidelines as Tompkins'best-selling literacy text, this new volume gives prospective teachers the background they need to teach essential literacy skills in grades 4-8 including vocabulary, content area reading, the reading/writing connections, narrative text, and print skills. Throughout the text, Tompkins' trademark "minilessons" highlight coverage that is based on four contemporary theories of literacy learning: constructivist, interactive, socio-linguistic, and reader-response. Because a child's learning can be seriously jeopardized by poor reading skills, significant attention is paid throughout the text to provide ways to help struggling learners become competent readers and writers.

Review:

Literacy for the 21st Century: Teaching Reading and Writing in Grades 4 Through 8 provides a concrete picture of effective literacy instruction for students in these grades. Included are a wealth of age-appropriate assessment tools, minilessons, and authentic classroom activities. You'll also find illustrative examples of how effective teachers engage middle-grade students in the act of reading and writing, providing particular instructional support for working with those students who struggle with literacy.

Features of this text include:
  • Chapter-opening vignettes and How Effective Teachers... features at the end of each chapter highlight real classrooms and real teaching strategies.
  • Struggling Readers and Writers notes throughout all chapters, along with Chapter 11, "Working with Struggling Readers and Writers," pinpoint specific ways to address the needs of this population of middle-grade students.
  • ELL margin notes throughout the text specify strategies and methods most appropriate for the English language learner.
  • Free CD-ROM features video footage from an authentic middle-grade classroom. The CD is integrated into the text via margin notes and a full-color insert.
