Personal interactions are the single most effective way for teachers to undersand and evaluate their student as learners. Responding specifically to new Common Core State Standards in reading and writing, this book introduces pre- and inservice teachers to a method of one-on-one interaction the authros refer to as the "stretch conference." This book provides detailed practical advice on the logistics of implementing these conferences during the busy school day, including tips on how and when to schedule conferences and how to successfully manage the classroom during conference time. The authors argue that, rather than using valuable conference time for word-level concerns and editing, teachers should focus on more ambitious goals that will deepen (or"stretch) students' skills in comprehension and writing. This resource suggests where conferences fit in with other important pieces of literacy instuction; introduces a variety of high-quality cues to use during conferences; and shows how conferences can function as formative assessment for reading and writing skills. This book: was written by two veteran teacher educators who conduct frequent workshops and professional development with teachers; helps teachers adjust their instruction for the demands of Common Core Standards; and includes many detailed examples of effective conferences take from real classrooms.

"This book offers a unique interpretation of traditional workshop instruction by showing teachers how to integrate their separate reading and writing workshops into one 'literacy workshop' (periodically and as dictated by student needs) that takes advantage of the inherent reciprocity between reading and writing. Through narrative discussion, student samples, photographs, instructional resources, online content, suggested lessons and various mentor texts, the book explains the structure of the literacy workshop, tells readers how to get started with it, and shows them how to decide when it's best to merge the two workshops into one. The book is divided into two parts. Part I (Chapters 1-4) lays the foundation and gives the nuts and bolts of literacy workshop. Part II (Chapters 5-9) includes engagement/strategy/topic focused demonstration lessons - which includes a primary and an intermediate level example lesson for each Big Idea"--

Presenting highlights from the past decade of East Central Writing Centers Association conferences, this book addresses the questions of how writing conferences foster the development of writing ability and how teachers can give students control of their own writing and of the writing conference and thus promote higher-order thinking. By providing insight into nontraditional writing settings, this book illustrates how college composition teachers can promote an exchange of ideas with their students and help those students achieve independence in their writing. Essays in the book include the following: (1) "Promoting Higher-Order Thinking Skills in Writing Conferences" (Thomas Flynn); (2) "A Counseling Approach to Writing Conferences" (David Taylor); (3) "Reevaluation of the Question as a Teaching Tool" (JoAnn B. Johnson); (4) "On the Issue of Authority" (David C. Fletcher); (5) "Looking for Clues" (Thomas C. Schmitzer); (6) "Experts with Life, Novices with Writing" (Marcia L. Hurlow); (7) "What Can Students Say about Poems? Reader Response in a Conference Setting" (Mary King); (8) "Using Conferences to Help Students Write Multiple Source Papers" (Patrick J. Slattery); (9) "Conferencing for the 'Learning-Disabled': How We Might Really Help" (Cornelius Cosgrove); (10) "Fostering Spontaneous Dialect Shift in the Writing of African-American Students" (Susanna Horn); and (11) "Writing Problems beyond the Classroom: The Confidence Problem" (Paula M. Oye). (SAM)

"With a focus on goal-directed, purpose-driven reading conferences, the author shows how form follows function--the structure of each conference is clearly designed to serve its purpose. Through "Researcher Spotlights" in each chapter, she'll also introduce you to a few of the teaching mentors and researchers who've had a profound influence on her work. The author describes different types of conferences, some designed for individuals, others for small groups. Some are used during independent reading time, others during partnership or club time. One can read the chapters in order or dip into the chapter that best suits their needs and purpose"--

A breakthrough in teaching the language arts, this new text integrates essential elements of phonics instruction with critical principles of literature-based instruction, and an emphasis on the arts resulting in a refreshing and balanced approach to language arts. Ron Cramer has been selected by The International Reading Association for the 2004 Outstanding Teacher Educator in Reading. Written with the belief that all children and teachers possess creative potential, respected author, Ron Cramer masterfully integrates phonics instruction with critical principles of literature-based instruction, namely literature, comprehension, writing, and oral language. Created especially for those students who want hands-on practical applications to take into the classroom, this text will be a “keeper” as it includes more activities than any other text that culminate in a compendium of activities—The Blue Pages—at the end of the book. In sum, Cramer's engaging writing style leaves readers feeling as though they “are in conversation with the author” and clearly answers the question, “How can we teach Language Arts well?” Lastly, this text adds new dimension by providing an important but often neglected emphasis on the arts.

The basic assumption of this book is that reading and writing in school should be natural and enjoyable for children, and its ideas are based on the Piagetian theory that knowledge is constructed by each individual and the psycholinguistic view that learning takes place best when viewed as holistic and when instructional materials for children are authentic and purposeful. The book describes the constructive nature of children's thinking, reading, and writing, and the natural development of these processes. Chapter 1 discusses a model of literacy learning and the role of teachers in creating sound literacy programs for their pupils. Chapters 2 and 3 present instructional ideas that support the literacy development of middle grade students. Chapter two centers on developing readers; some of the topics covered include reading aloud, literature sets, reading conferences, book talks, strategy lessons, and reading journals and logs. Chapter 3 focuses on developing writers and discusses various aspects of the writing workshop, writing outside the workshop, and assessment of writing--only those ideas which are consistent with a whole language view of literacy development have been included. Chapter 4 comments on specific questions about the whole language approach to reading and writing. Appendixes list publishers of students' writing, selected favorite books, selected poetry collections, and some discourse forms for content writing. A 19-item annotated bibliography and 27 references are attached. (MG)

Since its publication in 1998 Craft Lessons has become a mainstay of writing teachers, both new and experienced. Readers value the pithy, practical lessons?each printed on one page?and appreciate the instructional language geared to three grade-level groupings: K?2, 3?4, and 5?8. In the decade since Craft Lessons' publication the world has changed in many ways, yet one thing has remained constant: teachers continue to feel starved for time. With new curriculum mandates, daily specials, ?pull-outs,” and precious time devoted to test preparation, the situation has never been worse, and the need for a succinct resource like Craft Lessons has never been greater. The features that made Craft Lessons so valuable have been augmented. This edition includes: Seventeen brand new craft lessons; many based on veteran teachers' observations about typical student writing. Revisions to other craft lessons: model texts that have gone out of print have been replaced with current titles, and the resource materials sections have been expanded. New thinking about teaching elements of craft and the reading-writing connection. Two new indexes: a handy subject index to make it easier to find specific craft lessons, and an index that shows how these craft lessons can be integrated into Ralph and JoAnn's curriculum resource on the ?qualities of writing”?Ideas, Design, Language, and Presentation. The 95 lessons in this book provide a wealth of information for teaching leads, character, endings, stronger verbs, and much more. This new edition reestablishes Craft Lessons as the crucial ?desert island book” for harried writing teachers everywhere.

Language Arts Workshop: Purposeful Reading and Writing Instruction presents a manageable way of organizing instruction, exploring a gradual release of responsibility through meaningful experiences in all areas of need for literacy development, including oral language, spelling, vocabulary, word study, fluency, and comprehension. Like an apprenticeship, novice readers and writers learn a craft under the guidance of a skilled and knowledgeable teacher. Through the language arts workshop, students read and write everyday, spending time working with their teacher, collaborating with peers, and working independently. Learn to model successful language arts teaching for your students Workshop format addresses the diverse learning needs of students, including English language learners, students with disabilities, and students who read at, above, or below grade level to support early interverntion or response to intervention programs. Predictable chapter organization clarifies the workshop approach and framework. Authentic examples from successful classrooms engage readers and model effective language arts instruction. A strong focus on assessment grounds the instruction, and a compendium of assessment tools prepares readers to drive their own classroom.
