You gotta be the book : teaching engaged and reflective reading with adolescents by Jeffrey D Wilhelm( )

16 editions published between 1997 and 2016 in English and held by 2,338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through textured case studies of engaged and reluctant readers, "You Gotta Be the Book" addresses the following issues: What do highly engaged, adolescent readers DO as they read? What is it about traditional schooling, reading instruction, and literary instruction that deters engaged reading and serves to disenfranchise young readers? How can interventions like dramatic and artistic responses to literature be used in classrooms to help all readers, especially reluctant ones, to take on the strategies and stances of more expert readers - and to reconceive of reading as a personally meaningful, pleasurable and productive pursuit? This ground-breaking work will serve as an excellent supplemental text in graduate and undergraduate courses in language arts, reading and writing methods, and remedial reading; it will appeal to teacher educators, pre- and inservice teachers, special educators, and parents
Reading don't fix no Chevys : literacy in the lives of young men by Michael W Smith( Book )

10 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and held by 978 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The problems of boys in schools, especially in reading and writing, have been the focus of statistical data, but rarely does research point out how literacy educators can combat those problems. Michael Smith and Jeff Wilhelm worked with a very diverse group of young men to understand how they use literacy and what conditions promote it. In this book they share what they have learned. The authors' data-driven findings explain why boys reject much of school literacy and how progressive curricula and instruction might help boys engage with literacy and all learning in more productive ways

Imagining to learn : inquiry, ethics, and integration through drama by Jeffrey D Wilhelm( Book )

8 editions published between 1997 and 2008 in English and held by 440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Imagining to Learn moves drama into the mainstream of elementary and middle school teaching, learning, and curriculum. It is filled with examples of how teachers and students together can create contexts that draw out students' energies, abilities, and questions - contexts in which students can discover a reason to read, a need to think, and a community that cares about their ideas. Readers will discover new methodologies and techniques that are rarely used in the U.S. They will also become familiar with drama as a method of performance-based assessment and ways to engage in research with students. The book shows how to adapt these methods into a flexible set of strategies to help students read with better comprehension, learn sophisticated and abstract content, explore values, and forge new understandings
Improving comprehension with think-aloud strategies by Jeffrey D Wilhelm( Book )

6 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With this book, Jeff Wilhelm gets to the heart of what it means to be a passionate teacher and reader, one who not only conveys to his students an enthusiasm for reading, but also shows them ways that they can comprehend, appreciate, and converse with texts of all kinds. Jeff's energy for teaching is palpable and infectious, yet the beauty of this book emanates from Jeff's ability to reveal the raw mechanics of the reading process both to his students and to us."--Page 4 of cover
Reading Stephen King : issues of censorship, student choice, and popular literature by Brenda Miller Power( Book )

7 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of essays grew out of the "Reading Stephen King Conference" held at the University of Maine in 1996. Stephen King's books have become a lightning rod for the tensions around issues of including "mass market" popular literature in middle and high school English classes and of who chooses what students read. King's fiction is among the most popular of "pop" literature, and among the most controversial. These essays spotlight the ways in which King's work intersects with the themes of the literary canon and its construction and maintenance, censorship in public schools, and the need for adolescent readers to be able to choose books in school reading programs. The essays and their authors are: (1) "Reading Stephen King: An Ethnography of an Event" (Brenda Miller Power); (2) "I Want to Be Typhoid Stevie" (Stephen King); (3) "King and Controversy in Classrooms: A Conversation between Teachers and Students" (Kelly Chandler and others); (4) "Of Cornflakes, Hot Dogs, Cabbages, and King" (Jeffrey D. Wilhelm); (5) "The 'Wanna Read' Workshop: Reading for Love" (Kimberly Hill Campbell); (6) "When 'IT' Comes to the Classroom" (Ruth Shagoury Hubbard); (7) "If Students Own Their Learning, What Do Teachers Do?" (Curt Dudley-Marling); (8) "Disrupting Stephen King: Engaging in Alternative Reading Practices" (James Albright and Roberta F. Hammett); (9) "Because Stories Matter: Authorial Reading and the Threat of Censorship" (Michael W. Smith); (10) "Canon Construction Ahead" (Kelly Chandler); (11) "King in the Classroom" (Michael R. Collings); (12) "King's Works and the At-Risk Student: The Broad-Based Appeal of a Canon Basher" (John Skretta); (13) "Reading the Cool Stuff: Students Respond to 'Pet Sematary'" (Mark A Fabrizi); (14) "When Reading Horror Subliterature Isn't So Horrible" (Janice V. Kristo and Rosemary A. Bamford); (15) "One Book Can Hurt You ... But a Thousand Never Will" (Janet S. Allen); (16) "In the Case of King: What May Follow" (Anne E. Pooler and Constance M. Perry); and (17) "Be Prepared: Developing a Censorship Policy for the Electronic Age" (Abigail C. Garthwait). Appended are a joint manifesto by National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) and International Reading Association (IRA) concerning intellectual freedom; an excerpt from a teacher's guide to selected horror short stories of Stephen King; and the conference program. Contains a 152-item reference list of literary works.(NKA)
Going with the flow : how to engage boys (and girls) in their literacy learning by Michael W Smith( Book )

7 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawing on the research that won 'Reading Don't Fix No Chevys' the NCTE David H. Russell Award, Smith and Wilhelm take Chevys out of the showroom onto the road, presenting classroom-tested units, lessons, and activities that get boys reading and writing and keep them involved in literacy learning. Going with the Flow fully illustrates their approach to designing and sequencing instruction, taking you from developing activities that prepare students for success before they are even given assignments to fostering meaningful classroom discussions. Even if you haven't read 'Reading Don't Fix No Chevys,' Smith and Wilhelm provide a succinct summation of their research to get you started, then give you classroom transcripts, lesson-planning tips, and strategies for interacting with students to help you implement their ideas--Amazon.com
Standards in practice, grades 6-8 by Jeffrey D Wilhelm( Book )

3 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The challenge of middle school teaching is brought to life in this book, a narrative companion to the Standards for the English Language Arts developed by the National Council of Teachers of English and the International Reading Association. According to the book, team teaching and student-created materials form the framework for myriad assignments that directly use the standards as a base for literacy learning. The book states that the students use the standards as a base for literacy learning, and use a wide range of strategies to reinforce their awareness of their own learning--from reader response techniques to hypermedia tools they have developed for an extended project. Samples of teacher handouts and student work are included throughout the book, illustrating the substantive results of using the English language arts standards in the middle school. Detailed bibliographic references and highlighted standards guide educators in their quest to bring the standards in line with their own curriculum and classroom practices. (Contains 23 references).

These techniques can be used with virtually any kind of text, including fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and picture books. Idea tableaux, mirror mapping, illustrated journals, picture maps, character symbol maps, and quote books are just a few of the many motivating strategies you'll find. Wilhelm gives these strategies moorings in theory and current research, so teachers know exactly how to incorporate them into the "big picture" of their teaching goals.
