Promoting intentional teaching : the LEARN professional development model for early childhood educators by Julie K Kidd( )

3 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A highly effective recommended practice in early childhood education, intentional teaching enhances all young children's learning through planned instructional strategies, conversations, and activities that build on each child's needs and interests. Now there's an evidence-based professional development framework--the LEARN IT approach--that helps educators put intentional teaching into action in their classrooms. Developed by the authors, LEARN IT strengthens teaching in five steps: Learning new knowledge and skills, Enacting knowledge and skills in the classroom, Assessing the effectiveness of instructional interactions, Reflecting on and revising practices based on the assessment, and Networking with colleagues and mentors. Through unique professional development activities that build skills through group meetings and individual mentoring sessions, teachers will master essential elements of intentional teaching and consistently apply their new knowledge in the classroom. Practical, flexible, and supportive, this proven plan for professional development will help schools make lasting gains in teacher effectiveness and boost learning outcomes for all young children. Benefits of LEARN IT: Demystifies key elements of intentional teaching. Educators will discover how to facilitate play, include each child, engage in culturally responsive practice, assess diverse young children, and link assessment with curriculum and instruction. Engages teachers with effective activities. Facilitated professional development activities build teachers' skills through group meetings, one-to-one sessions between educators and mentors, and follow-up small-group meetings to discuss progress. Ensures lasting improvements. Going far beyond one-time teacher trainings, the authors' in-depth, ongoing LEARN IT approach ensures that educators retain new skills and strategies and apply them with fidelity in their everyday work. Evidence-based and field-tested. LEARN IT was developed and tested for effectiveness during a multiyear research project with Head Start teachers. Fits a variety of professional development needs. LEARN IT can be used with larger or smaller groups of teachers, and activities are flexible and adaptable to different learning needs. PRACTICAL MATERIALS: The professional development activities come with clear and detailed instructions; reproducible self-assessments, discussion questions, and exercises; and check sheets to ensure that new skills are implemented with fidelity"--

Starting Out Right A Guide to Promoting Children's Reading Success. Specific Recommendations from America's Leading Researchers on How To Help Children Become Successful Readers by M. Susan Burns( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Noting the increasing number of students who cannot read, this book shows parents, educators, caregivers, policymakers, and others how to promote the reading success of young children. It focuses on children from birth through the first 5 years of formal schooling, and includes practical guidelines, program descriptions, advice on resources, and strategies for use in everyday life (including practical literacy and language activities for parents and their young children) and activities and practices for classrooms. Following a brief introduction, the first chapter discusses the process of reading. This chapter outlines the characteristics of good readers, circumstances that promote reading, and the kinds of opportunities that enable children to be successful readers. The next chapter focuses on children through age four. This chapter covers the key aspects of language and literacy and activities for very young children; the role of home, day care, and preschool environments in literacy development; and language and literacy activities in preschool. The third chapter looks at children in kindergarten through third grade and provides families and communities a basis for understanding and helping as teachers work with children at this level of reading development. This chapter describes the elements of effective classroom instruction in the early grades. The last chapter addresses reading difficulties and features a variety of interventions to help struggling readers, such as tutoring, pull-out remediation programs, and dramatic school restructuring.

Preparing our teachers : opportunities for better reading instruction by Dorothy Strickland( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Today's teachers face huge challenges, especially for teaching reading in the primary grades. A recent study reveals that fewer than half of American teachers report feeling "very well prepared" to meet such challenges. This book seeks to improve that statistic by extracting practical information from the report issued by the National Research Council in 1998, "Preventing Reading Difficulties in Young Children." The book outlines what classroom teachers need to know and what they need to be able to do to give children in preschool through Grade 4 the essential opportunities to become good readers. It discusses what teacher education programs need to do to make their students good teachers of good readers and looks at what schools and school districts need to do to keep their teachers up to date for teaching reading. Chapters in the book are: Introduction--Teachers of Young Children: The Agents and Champions of Literacy; (1) From Shopping Lists to Poetry: Forms and Functions of Written Language; (2) Making Meaning: Language Development and Comprehension; (3) Sounds, Letters, and Words: How Print Works; (4) Moving to Success: Motivating Children to Read; and (5) Anticipating Challenges: Assessment, Prevention, and Intervention. Each chapter contains resource lists and sample activities for teacher learning. The Introduction contains notes and a resource list. (Nka)
