9780130608574: Becoming a Teacher of Reading: A Developmental Approach

For Introduction to Reading and Beginning Reading courses. This developmentally organized, constructivist reading methods book places the reader squarely in today's reading classroom, grounding theoretical discussion with self-regulating pedagogy and providing a wealth of actual classroom examples and activities. The result is a polished, engaging book that will quickly instill in future teachers the joy of helping children learn to read and read to learn. Follows children's literacy progress as they develop from being early readers to being interpretive readers to being independent, critically thinking readers. It weaves together a discussion of skills, strategies, and assessment procedures, and connects ideas to Interstate New Teachers Assessment and Support Consortium (INTASC) standards. Developmental organization reflects the way children's literacy evolves—divides coverage into Early Readers, Interpretive Readers, and Critical Readers, addressing key literacy topics as they affect each learning stage. For future teachers who will teach beginning reading.

From the Back Cover:

This core reading methods text takes an integrated, developmental approach to reading instruction, an approach supported by the text's unique organization: Early Readers (grades K-2), Interpretive Readers (grades 3-5), and Critical Readers (grades 6-8). These sections weave together discussions of skills, strategies, and assessment procedures that support literacy growth, consistently grounding discussions in the INTASC principles. Basing their presentation on the social constructivist theory, the authors place readers squarely in the reading classroom, ground their theoretical discussions with self-regulating pedagogy, and provide readers with a wealth of classroom vignettes, examples, and activities.

Features fit into the text's workshop approach.
  • Connections: What's Next? This chapter-ending graphic charts the developmental framework, organizing information for each developmental stage while illustrating the overlap among stages.
  • For Your Portfolio suggests portfolio entries that align with the INTASC principles as well as the IRA/NCTE standards, and chronicle your learning in the course.
  • See for Yourself offers interactive learning activities that connect ideas from the text to actual and virtual classrooms.
  • Assessment is integrated throughout the text; look for assessment icons in the margins.
