After reviewing current research on upper-elementary reading instruction, the book takes readers directly into the classrooms of six highly successful teachers.

Bringing to life the complexities of day-to-day work with diverse students, the book provides inspiration and practical ideas for any teacher in the upper-elementary grades
Readicide : how schools are killing reading and what you can do about it by Kelly Gallagher( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 711 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: Read-i-cide n: The systematic killing of the love of reading, often exacerbated by the inane, mind-numbing practices found in schools. Reading is dying in our schools. Educators are familiar with many of the factors that have contributed to the decline-poverty, second-language issues, and the ever-expanding choices of electronic entertainment. In this provocative new book, Kelly Gallagher suggests, however, that it is time to recognize a new and significant contributor to the death of reading: our schools. In Readicide, Kelly argues that American schools are actively (though unwittingly) furthering the decline of reading. Specifically, he contends that the standard instructional practices used in most schools are killing reading by: valuing the development of test-takers over the development of lifelong readers; mandating breadth over depth in instruction; requiring students to read difficult texts without proper instructional support; insisting that students focus solely on academic texts; drowning great books with sticky notes, double-entry journals, and marginalia; ignoring the importance of developing recreational reading; and losing sight of authentic instruction in the shadow of political pressures. Kelly doesn't settle for only identifying the problems. Readicide provides teachers, literacy coaches, and administrators with specific steps to reverse the downward spiral in reading-steps that will help prevent the loss of another generation of readers

Big brother and the national reading curriculum : how ideology trumped evidence by Richard L Allington( Book )

5 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reading researcher Richard Allington tracks and questions the thirty-year campaign that has focused on testing, accountability, and federalization of education. He and other educators, including Jim Cunningham, Michael Pressley, Elaine Garan, and Patrick Shannon, have contributed articles that provide an overview of past and recent federal education policies, including the National Reading Panel Report and associated legislation and policy making, with analyses of the premises of the new national reading plan. By showing how these premises are manufactured -- that is, not reliably supported by the research -- they explain why this plan is an unwarranted federal encroachment into local educational decision making. Allington's closing argument calls for a shift away from federal education policies that the record shows are proven failures. He warns that the ideological push we are experiencing today for a national reading curriculum is just the tip of the iceberg. This, he contends, is the sort of top-down management that is undermining the very strengths of our public education system
