Debbie Diller has revolutionized literacy instruction in countless classrooms over the years with her seminal books (Literacy Work Stations, Practice with Purpose, and Spaces & Places) on how to effectively use literacy work stations to engage students in critical literacy learning. In Growing Independent Learners, she provides a comprehensive guide--with more than 400 full-color photos--to help you plan instruction focused on literacy standards, organize your classroom for maximum benefit, and lead your students to independence through whole-group lessons, small-group focus, and partner learning at literacy stations. The first four chapters lay the foundation with planning, organizing, and instruction that are essential for success with literacy work stations. From creating a model classroom and developing planning tools to using anchor charts, Debbie gives you creative ideas for making the most of your classroom environment to support student independence. Later chapters focus on standards-based instruction built around key reading, writing, and foundational skills as well as speaking, listening, and language standards. Each of these chapters provides the following: · Detailed explanations of each focal standard's importance and real-world application · Planning tools that include academic vocabulary, plans for whole-group instruction, and suggestions for literacy work stations · Complete whole-group lesson plans that you can use and modify again and again · Connections to help you extend the lessons into other areas of daily instruction, including independent reading time, small-group instruction, and work stations · Mentor texts to use during whole group, small group, or stations · Teaching tips that can help build skills from grade to grade Growing IndependentLearners will help you create a vibrant classroom filled with independent learners. This book will quickly become an essential resource for any teacher who believes, as Debbie does, that all children can learn to work independently in a classroom that's well organized and mindfully planned.

Interactive writing is a dynamic, unscripted instructional method in which the teacher and students work together to construct a meaningful text while simultaneously discussing the details of the writing process. Together they plan, compose, and review text in a variety of genres. The "interactive" piece involves group collaboration in planning and composing the writing through guided conversation and a unique "sharing the pen" technique where students do the actual writing. Interactive writing harnesses the natural interactions teachers have with their students as they compose a writing piece. It allows for real-time differentiation and tailored scaffolding. Interactive writing fits within any writing curriculum and can be adapted to your classroom's technology levels. Interactive Writing Across Grades: A Small Practice with Big Results, Pre-K-5 is your how-to guide, unpacking this powerful method step by step--and grade by grade. The authors help you figure out where and how interactive writing fits within your literacy framework, regardless of the grade you teach. In these pages, you'll find the following: An overview of the interactive writing method and how it fits into your balanced literacy program Concrete ways to launch interactive writing in your classroom to support both process and craft instruction Step-by-step guidance to implement the method with students of all ages Real classroom writing from every grade that shows what to expect at each phase of the process "Listen in on a Lesson" vignettes that demonstrate the type of scaffolding you can offer during interactive writing lessons Discover what makes interactive writing a particularly effective teaching practice that can support both emergent and fluent writers. Interactive Writing Across Grades can help you put this method to work in your classroom immediately. Grades PreK-5

This accessible text will show students and class teachers how they can enable their pupils to become critical thinkers through the medium of picturebooks. By introducing children to the notion of making-meaning together through thinking and discussion, Roche focuses on carefully chosen picturebooks as a stimulus for discussion, and shows how they can constitute an accessible, multimodal resource for adding to literacy skills, while at the same time developing in pupils a far wider range of literary understanding. By allowing time for thinking about and digesting the pictures as well as the text, and then engaging pupils in classroom discussion, this book highlights a powerful means of developing children’s oral language ability, critical thinking, and visual literacy, while also acting as a rich resource for developing children’s literary understanding. Throughout, Roche provides rich data and examples from real classroom practice. This book also provides an overview of recent international research on doing ‘interactive read alouds’, on what critical literacy means, on what critical thinking means and on picturebooks themselves. Lecturers on teacher education courses for early years or primary levels, classroom teachers, pre-service education students, and all those interested in promoting critical engagement and dialogue about literature will find this an engaging and very insightful text.
