Readicide how schools are killing reading and what you can do about it by Kelly Gallagher ( )
3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,666 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

What really matters for struggling readers : designing research-based programs by Richard L Allington ( Book )
11 editions published between 2001 and 2012 in English and held by 1,158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Nationally recognized scholar and author Dick Allington once again delivers a concise and balanced introduction to reading remediation and intervention programs, showing teachers how to use a variety of best practices with children who are struggling readers in order to transform them into proficient readers. This new edition includes the latest findings on reading achievement and instruction, reading volume as it relates to reading proficiency, reader-text match, fluency development, comprehension strategies, and instruction for struggling readers. Its emphasis is on explaining what the research says, why it works, and how to use this information to provide intensive, expert reading instruction for all children. The continued focus on helping teachers design reading remediation and intervention programs around well-established reality and research-based components is framed within the confines of the No Child Left Behind Act. Paired with Dick's book What Really Matters in Response to Intervention, educators have the best tools for helping every student learn to love reading

Big brother and the national reading curriculum : how ideology trumped evidence ( Book )
4 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
