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

Text leveling and little books in first-grade reading( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper investigates the validity of two current approaches for estimating text difficulty at the first-grade level--the Scale for Text Accessibility and Support-Grade 1 (stas-1) and the Fountas/ Pinnell system--and analyzed student performance in relation to each. Subjects, 105 first graders in two schools, used "little books"--easy to read tiny paperbacks that serve as leveled practice materials for beginning readers. The schools are located in an urban area, 90% Latino, low-income, and with 95% of the students qualifying for subsidized school meals. The children were tested and placed into high, middle, and low ability-based reading groups. Each child was assigned a text set to read under either a preview, modeled, or sight reading condition, and their performance was evaluated for accuracy, rate, and fluency. Results indicated that the text leveling procedures these systems employed were largely accurate. Their analysis even suggested potential benchmarks for first-grade performance: 95% accuracy, 80 words per minute, and a fluency level of 3 (on a scale of 1-5) with reading material of mid-first-grade difficulty. More research is needed to determine whether these figures hold for the larger public. Lastly, results indicated that the modeled reading condition seemed particularly supportive of children's subsequent independent reading at any level. (Contains 13 tables of data and 18 references.)
