Words : the foundation of literacy by Dale D Johnson( )

10 editions published between 2010 and 2018 in English and held by 1,458 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At a time when high-stakes testing has squeezed substance from many curricula, Johnson and Johnson provide ways to students' understanding, interest, and appreciation of language and all its subtleties. Words explores how meaning in language is created by the use and interrelationships of words, phrases, and sentences, their denotations, connotations, implications, and ambiguities. From birth, most children exhibit a natural interest in language--its sounds, nuances, and unpredictable qualities. It is important to sustain, stimulate, and recapture that natural interest in the classroom, and Words provides a multitude of creative and practical techniques for doing so."--Pub. desc

High stakes : children, testing, and failure in American schools by Dale D Johnson( Book )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 636 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Spending a year as teachers at one of the poorest elementary schools in Louisiana, the authors witnessed first hand the damages of the standards and accountability measures forced on poor children. They present their story in journal form, demonstrating how the poverty of the children, the lack of resources of the schools, the demoralization of teachers, and the imposition of the accountability "reforms" are some of the prime factors for the failure of American education. They offer advice for some real reform that would focus on the economic inequality of school districts

Stop high-stakes testing : an appeal to America's conscience by Dale D Johnson( Book )

3 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 543 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Johnson (literacy education, Dowling College) argues that closing America's achievement gap cannot be accomplished until equality gaps in the school, home, and neighborhood are addressed. Defining corrective justice as a national commitment to create equal opportunities for all public school students who must take the same high-stakes tests, Johnson and his co-authors (all of whom teach human development and learning at Dowling College) advocate for improvements in affordable housing, living wage employment, equity in school buildings and resources, adequate medical care for all students, and violence-free homes and communities.

Views on elementary reading instruction by International Reading Association( Book )

9 editions published between 1972 and 1973 in English and held by 397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presented are 11 papers (of the more than 50 delivered at the 1972 International Reading Association Convention) selected by a board of independent judges for their fresh insights, practical suggestions, and sound advice on reading instruction in the elementary school. Section one contains papers focusing on psycholinguistic and sociolingustic insights, some unfounded assumptions about disadvantaged children, and premises about urban school reading instruction. Section two highlights the importance of using a child's thoughts, language, and actions as a basis for teaching him to read and presents techniques and activities to use with the language experience approach. Section three touches on the affective dimension of reading--the importance of using pupil's interests as a means of involving them in reading and a sevenfold plan for individualizing reading instruction and, in doing so, showing concern for students' interests and attitudes. Section four contains two papers which deal with content reading--differences between narrative and expository styles as well as a review of selected literature pertaining to the research study skills. The last section focuses on the contributions paraprofessionals can make to a reading program. (Hod)

An investigation of two instructional settings in the use of semantic mapping with poor readers by Susan D Pittelman( Book )

Project on the investigation of the effectiveness of vocabulary instruction : final report by Susan D Pittelman( Book )

5 editions published between 1985 and 1989 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The primary focuse of the research project reported in this paper over a five-year period has been on investigating the effectiveness of vocabulary teaching strategies, with particular emphasis on the two semantic-based instructional strategies of semantic mapping and semantic feature analysis. A series of five varied studies evaluated these strategies for vocabulary acquisition. All verified that these strategies are not only powerful tools for vocabulary development but good alternatives to the traditional instructional activities presented before students read a new passage (pre-reading). In this latter application, semantic mapping and feature analysis serve not only to introduce key vocabulary from a passage but also to activate students' prior knowledge of a topic, thereby better preparing students to understand, assimilate, and evaluate the information in the material to be read. In addition, when used after reading a new passage (postreading), semantic based instructional strategies provide a review of the material that anchors new knowledge to prior knowledge. In a secondary focus of the research project to determine the role of vocabulary instruction in actual classroom practice, a field survey of teachers was conducted. Results indicate that vocabulary instruction and emphasis are not high priorities with most classroom teachers. (Nka)
