Your resource for best texts and best practices!

Kathy Barclay and Laura Stewart have written the book that teachers like you have been pleading for―a resource that delivers the "what I need to know " to engage kids in a significant amount of informational text reading experiences.

No filler, no lofty ideals about college and career readiness, but instead, the information on how to find lesson-worthy texts and create developmentally appropriate instructional plans that truly help young readers comprehend grade-level texts. What you’ll love most:

  • The how-to’s on selecting informational texts
  • High-impact comprehension strategies
  • Model text lessons and lesson plan templates
  • An annotated list of 449 informational texts

Review:

""The book is well written, well organized, and teacher friendly. It addresses a topic--the use of informational text with younger students--that has not been sufficiently addressed in guidelines associated with the CCSS. It contains valuable lists of children's nonfiction texts, annotated and organized by grade level. The suggested lesson format is illustrated concretely with sample lesson plans based on high-quality informational texts.""--Louisa Moats, Ed.D., Contributing Writer of the Common Core State Standards

""For K-2 teachers eager to select and teach from 'informational texts of substance, ' Barclay and Stewart offer much guidance. With keen insight, they also direct our pedagogical attention to the oft-overlooked, but tremendously powerful, text complexity essentials--oral language development, read aloud, and shared reading." "--Jan Miller Burkins, Author of Preventing Misguided Reading

""""There was a time when a book like this would have set out to try to persuade teachers. But, that's not the issue anymore. . . . Teachers everywhere are asking themselves, 'How do I teach with informational texts?' Kathy Barclay and Laura Stewart provide a rich collection of practical answers to that question. Their book can--through its practical lessons, advice, and guidance--show teachers how to make informational text a joyful reality in the lives of our youngest scholars.""--Timothy Shanahan, Distinguished Professor Emeritus, University of Illinois at Chicago

""Kathy Barclay and Laura Stewart"" have done a marvelous job of providing teachers with specific suggestions for making the most of informational texts--from choosing the right texts for students, to practical and effective instructional strategies that will help students engage in close reading of these important texts, to an actual lesson format for teaching informational texts. Teaching informational texts can be a challenge for primary grade teachers. "The Everything Guide to Informational Texts" will help teachers and students meet that challenge!""--Timothy Rasinski, Ph.D., Kent State University

Book Description SAGE Publications Inc, United States, 2014. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Many educators, overwhelmed by the increasing demands of the profession and by the effort that the move to the Common Core Standards requires, continue to view fiction text as the primary source for both read aloud experiences and beginning reading instruction. This text helps all educators and prospective educators see nonfiction texts as an important component of all aspects of the PreK-2 curriculum and to provide them with practical, proven tools for selection and use of a wide variety of informational literature, including books, magazines, charts, graphs, digital media, and more. The authors examine why a balance of informational and narrative text is so important, and what recent research reveals about the value of using nonfiction text with young children. Those working most closely with children in kindergarten through second grade classrooms will find this to be a practical resource for understanding the Standards related to nonfiction text, and for selecting and using appropriate informational literature to build young children s background knowledge and their acquisition of foundational reading skills. Individuals responsible for professional development and for coaching teachers implementation of the reading curriculum should be able to use this text in teacher book club discussion groups, and as the base for design of professional development sessions.
