Reading to learn : lessons from exemplary fourth-grade classrooms by Richard L Allington( Book )

7 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 800 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After reviewing current research on upper-elementary reading instruction, the book takes readers directly into the classrooms of six highly successful teachers. Like the previously published Learning to Read, which focused on the first grade, Reading to Learn offers a rare view of the techniques and strategies good teachers use to engage students, help them develop as thoughtful readers and writers, and bolster self-directed learning and literate conversation. 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

Reading comprehension assessment : a cognitive basis by Peter H Johnston( Book )

11 editions published between 1983 and 1986 in English and Undetermined and held by 471 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing on work from a number of disciplines, this volume brings together experimental and theoretical information relevant to the problems of assessing children's reading comprehension. After a short introduction, the first section defines reading comprehension, presenting theoretical issues intended to provide an understanding of what is being measured and what that measurement means. The second section covers factors that influence reading comprehension and its assessment, stressing the importance of structure, content, and language of the text for the reader's comprehension of it, particularly in the context of his or her background knowledge. The third section deals with assessment methodology, including its purposes, the constraints on it, and the cognitive demands and information content of different assessment methods. The volume's final section charts new directions in reading comprehension assessment, asking what can and should be assessed and how this assessment might be carried out and also addressing question construction and the characteristics and interpretation of tests.

L'importance des mots : le langage au cœur de la relation élève-enseignant by Peter H Johnston( Book )

3 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in French and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dans les classes favorables au développement intellectuel, les enseignants ne se contentent pas d'inculquer des habiletés aux élèves. Ils forment des collectivités d'apprentissage saines sur les plans émotif et relationnel. Ils créent des milieux intellectuels qui produisent des élèves compétents par leurs connaissances, et des êtres humains attentifs aux autres, confiants et capables d'exploiter activement leur capacité à lire et à écrire. L'importance des mots montre comment les enseignants accomplissent ces tâches en servant de l'outil le plus efficace à leur disposition : le langage. L'auteur, Peter Johnston, démontre à quel point les mots, les expressions et l'utilisation du langage jouent un rôle crucial dans l'orchestration des interactions en classe. A l'aide d'exemples éloquents, il illustre comment ce que nous disons (ou ne disons pas) peut avoir de répercussions surprenantes sur ce que les enfants apprennent et sur leur avenir en tant que lecteurs ou auteurs
