13 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in English and held by 901 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This highly practical book presents research-based approaches to building students' vocabulary and promoting a lifelong appreciation of words. Prominent researchers identify and discuss the multiple components of effective vocabulary instruction--teaching the meanings of specific words, teaching students strategies for learning new words on their own, and providing opportunities for word and language play. In every chapter, findings on the processes of successful vocabulary learning are translated into useful, effective instructional activities and techniques. Outlined are important new ideas for designing curricula and providing experiences that help students of all ages and skill levels gain access to the meanings of words that they read. Throughout, engaging classroom examples enhance the utility of this teacher-friendly resource

Balancing principles for teaching elementary reading by James V Hoffman( Book )

6 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This text offers a perspective for teaching that provokes members of the reading education community to think about their underlying beliefs about teaching and their shared commitment to making schools more effective for the students they serve. It is envisioned as a resource to be used in building a community of learners, to be read with professional colleagues in a course of study, in a teacher/researcher book club, or in some type of inservice setting. Readers are encouraged to debate the ideas presented, to challenge the authors' conceptions with their own reality, and to make sense within a community about what action is desirable. Some specific suggestions and strategies are provided as springboards for further exploration and action."--Jacket

Engaged reading for pleasure and learning : a report from the National Reading Research Center by James F Baumann( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report highlights key studies, salient findings, and the significance of research supported by the National Reading Research Center (nrrc), which was charged to conduct research on reading instruction appropriate for prekindergarten through 12th-grade learning environments. The first chapter of the report elaborates on a foundation principle of nrrc researchers--the "engagement perspective" which specifies the goal of reading instruction as developing motivated and strategic readers who use literacy for pleasure and learning. Chapters 2, 3, and 4 present key ideas contributed to or reinforced by the NRRC's 5-year research program. Chapter 2 addresses key ideas for preschool and elementary school reading, including: reading instruction should be systematic and integrated with quality children's literature; phonics should be taught explicitly within the context of authentic reading and writing activities; and literacy learning occurs both at school and home. Chapter 3 describes key ideas for middle school and high school reading, including: the use of multiple documents fosters students' interest in and learning of social studies content; a student-centered English curriculum motivates and promotes secondary students' literacy learning; and using analogies in science instruction aids students' learning and appreciation of science content. Chapter 4 presents key ideas for and about literacy teachers, such as: teachers who conduct research acquire personal insight about teaching and learning; and students serving as researches or informants provide insightful perspectives within the teacher-research process. Chapter 5 envisions what the nrrc legacy might be. Contains 196 notes. (Rs)
