What is trauma and what does it mean for the literacy curriculum? In this book, elementary teachers will learn how to approach difficult experiences through the everyday instruction and interactions in their classrooms. Readers will look inside classrooms and literacies across genres to see what can unfold when teachers are committed to compassionate, critical, and relational practice. Weaving her own challenging experiences into chapters brimming with children’s writing and voices, Dutro emphasizes that issues of power and privilege matter centrally to how attention to trauma positions children. The book includes questions and prompts for discussion, reflection, and practice and describes pedagogies and strategies designed to provide opportunities for children to bring the varied experiences of life, including trauma, to their school literacies, especially their writing, in positive, meaningful, and supported ways. Book Features: Offers a reconceptualization of trauma as a source of connection, reciprocity, knowledge, and literacy engagement. Identifies three key tenets that teachers can follow to ensure that children’s experiences and perspectives are honored. Shares classroom stories and literacy lessons, including many examples of children’s writing. Includes sum-up reflections and discussion prompts. Provides up-to-date lists of resources.

From the reviews of the First Edition: "This book is an ambitious and important contribution to the care of our most wounded patients. For those of us who regularly care for vulnerable patients, it provides an excellent resource and supportive guide. However, it should also become part of the standard library for all medical students and practicing physicians. All physicians have much to learn from the practical, evidence-based approaches to the societal issues we all face in practice. Ultimately, this is a book that could help all clinicians take better care of all patients, especially those who may need extra help and support as they navigate our complex health care system." -- New England Journal of Medicine The Second Edition features: Fully revised to reflect passage and impact of the Affordable Care Act on care of underserved patients Expanded with major new chapters, from Health Quality to Rural Healthcare, and additional content relevant to nursing Focused on evidence-based practice with a patient-centered approach Full color format Boxed main points and Practical "Pearls,” such as how to write a disability letter PowerPoint slides and question sets, exercises, and cases to aid instruction

This book is interdisciplinary in focus and centers on enlarging teachers' understanding of how reading and writing can change lives and how the language arts can contribute significantly to and change educational processes in the twenty-first century. Implicit in its argument is that although the emphasis on science and math is crucial to education in the digital edge, it remains vitally important to keep reading and writing, language and story, at the heart of the educational process. This is particularly true in a democratic society because shaping stories through human language can enhance the quality of our lives, and teach us something important about what it means to be human and vulnerable. In this sense, stories allow for self-reflection and an increased opportunity to enhance and understand emotional intelligence and human community. -- Book Description from website.

High Literacy and Ethnic Identity describes the experiences of fifteen men and women who arrived with the first and second wave of immigrants from the Dominican Republic to the United States and who, despite the odds, succeeded in completing the highest level of formal education-a doctorate-and are now educators in US colleges and universities. Examining these cultural narratives reveals much about the complex symbiosis between becoming highly literate and (re)constructing an ethnic identity; it elucidates the realities of an increasingly visible group who are using formal education to step out of the margins of society; it sorts out what it means to be a literate "other" American. These insights can be useful to scholars of Dominican/Latino/a Studies, all teachers of Composition and Literacy, and the general reader, particularly those interested in understanding the conditions that help new immigrants to thrive, and those invested in reshaping institutions of learning.

The National Society for the Study of Education is an organization of education scholars, professional educators, and policymakers dedicated to the improvement of education research, policy, and practice. Founded in 1901 by a small group of distinguished educators including John Dewey, Nicholas Murray Butler, and Charles Hubbard Judd, NSSE is the oldest national educational research organization in the United States. The mission of the National Society for the Study of Education is to investigate enduring and contemporary problems, disseminate the findings of its investigations, and engage members of the education community in study and discourse around those findings for the improvements of research, policy, and practice. One important way the Society accomplishes this mission is through the publications of its two–volume yearbooks, now in their 104th year. Each volume of a yearbook deals with a separate topic of current concern to educators. With knowledgeable scholars and practitioners as contributing authors, the yearbooks are reliable and authoritative sources of information on timely educational topics. Some yearbooks have become landmark publications in the field with which they deal. As the Society moved into its second century, it acknowledges its indebtedness to the numerous authors and editors whose work has made the yearbooks significant contributions to the study of education during the past century. NSSE looks ahead to fostering stronger relationships between researchers, educators, and policymakers, with the goal of improving education for the nation′s childrens and youth, through continued collaborative study of educational problems. Membership in the Society is open to all individuals who desire to receive the Yearbooks regularly. Members include teachers, administrators, researchers, other educational personnel, and policymakers at all levels of education in the United States, Canada, and overseas.

The Golden Chain recalls a great Yiddish idea - die goldene keyt- the handling on the enormous cultural wealth of Jewish tradition from generation to generation. This was the mission of the founding editor of The Jewish Quarterly, Jacob Sonnag, who, as he later recalled, felt called upon to add to the golden chain. For fifty years The Jewish Quarterly has published the finest Jewish writing from around the world. Today it remains true to its founding ideals of cultural pluralism and open debate about the many issues of interest and concern to Jews in Britain and internationally. The Golden Chain brings together the finest writing to have been published in The Jewish Quarterly since it began. It focuses on central themes of London, community, Vanished Worlds, literature and Israel.

The unique focus of this text integrates constructivist learning, diversity, and instruction-based assessment, and helps translate principles into practice. The central, underlying thesis of Teaching Language and Literacy is that children are at the center of all good language and literacy teaching. The text, with broad coverage of preschool through the elementary grades, advocates an appreciation of student diversity and an implementation of assessment strategies relating to specific learning/teaching events. The text describes how children construct their own knowledge about oral and written language by engaging in integrated, meaningful, and functional activities with other people in a variety of contexts. It then goes one step further, describing how teachers can design authentic classroom reasons for using oral and written language. In keeping with the text's theme, illustrations of how teachers can work effectively with diverse learners appear throughout the text. In addition, instructionally-linked assessment is another important topic central to the text.

This powerful book demonstrates how culturally responsive teaching can make learning come alive. Drawing on his experience as a fifth-grade teacher in a multiethnic school where children spoke over 14 different home languages, the author reveals how he created a language arts curriculum from the students’ own rich cultural resources, narratives, and identities. Illustrating the challenges and possibilities of teaching and learning in a large urban school, this book: Documents how a culturally engaged pedagogy improved student achievement and increased standardized test scores. Examines the literacy practices of children from immigrant, migrant, and refugee backgrounds, and includes powerful examples of their voices and writing. Provides an invaluable model of reflective practice, including a wide array of student-centered strategies, to generate powerful learning experiences Demonstrates a way for teachers to tap into the various forms of literacy students practice beyond the borders of the classroom.
