9780435088941: Creating Support for Effective Literacy Education: Workshop Materials and Handouts

In helping others to understand how reading and writing flourish in whole language classrooms, have you ever wished for materials that clearly convey what we know about effective teaching and learning of literacy? This indispensable resource provides everything you need, including just the right transparencies, brochures, and fact sheets.

It's been proven that by treating reading and writing as gradually emerging processes rather than skills to be taught and mastered in isolation, children not only become proficient, but also develop a lifetime love of reading and writing. But when parents and administrators hear only about literacy activities without details on how teachers "teach" children to read and write, they understandably become concerned. "What about phonics and spelling?" they ask. This book addresses the need, then, to help others understand the nature of learning and the processes of language and literacy development, as well as some of the specific things teachers do to nurture independent and competent readers and writers.

Part I contains eight sections, made up of materials that can be copied directly onto transparencies, on learning theory, language acquisition, the reading process, teaching and learning reading, phonics, reading strategies, writing, and assessment. Each set is accompanied by suggestions for using the transparencies, relevant anecdotes about the authors' experiences using them, background information from research, and sources and resources. The transparencies can be selected and organized in any order to fit your individual needs. Part II includes fliers, letters, brochures, and fact sheets on various topics relating to emergent literacy and teaching practice, all of which can also be copied and distributed as needed.

Though designed primarily for workshops and weekend courses, Creating Support for Effective Literacy Education is also appropriate for regular college courses focusing on professional development and inservice teacher training.

About the Author:

Lorraine Gillmeister-Krause, a teacher for more than twenty-five years, teaches thirty miles west of Montreal, Canada, in a one-room schoolhouse, which received the NCTE Center of Excellence in English language Arts Award in 1989. She has been active in the whole language movement and has been a member of the board of directors of the Whole Language Umbrella.

For more than three decades, Constance Weaver has been one of the fields' leading voices on literacy topics ranging from the reading process to grammar instruction with writing. Reading Process & Practice first appeared in 1988 and became widely known as the most authoritative, comprehensive, and definitive book of its kind. Now available in a Brief Edition, it continues to help teaches define reading in ways that support high-quality instruction. Connie once again led the way with the 1996 publication of the bestselling Teaching Grammar in Context and its companion Lessons to Share on Teaching Grammar in Context. Since then she has expanded and deepened her insights and specific teaching ideas in The Grammar Plan Book and Grammar to Enrich and Enhance Writing. In 1996, the Michigan Council of Teachers of English honored Weaver with the Charles C. Fries award for outstanding leadership in the profession. Connie is the Heckert Professor of Reading and Writing at Miami University, Oxford, Ohio, and Professor Emerita of English at Western Michigan University .

Grace Vento-Zogby has taught children ages six through thirteen for seventeen years. She is an active member of several professional organizations, including the Whole Language Umbrella and IRA's Whole Language Special Interest Group, and she is founder of the Utica Area TAWL. Currently Grace is a reading specialist at Sauquoit Valley Elementary School, Sauquoit, New York.
