"What if there was a time when things slowed down? No rotations, activities, or worksheets-just you, your kids, and books. Would you take it?" -Debbie Miller and Barbara Moss We know children learn to read by reading. Is independent reading valuable enough to use precious classroom minutes on? Yes, writes Debbie Miller and Barbara Moss, but only if that time is purposeful. DEAR and SSR aren't enough. Research shows that independent reading must be accompanied by intentional instruction and conferring. Debbie and Barbara clear a path for you to take informed action that makes a big difference, with: a rationale for independent reading that's worth finding the time for research evidence on its effectiveness and instructional best practices a framework with 10 teaching tactics for starting and sustaining success. "When we set children loose day after day with no focus or support, it can lead to fake reading and disengagement," write Debbie and Barbara. "It's our job to equip children with the tools they need when we're not there." Read No More Independent Reading Without Support and find out how.

Pizza. Pez dispensers. Nerf balls. When we give students "junk" to reward reading, we are focusing their intention away from the act of reading and from their own independence as readers. Instead, we can create classrooms where reading is seen as its own reward. In this book, esteemed researcher Linda Gambrell provides a research-based context for cultivating children's intrinsic motivation to read and identifies three essential principles, the "ARC" of motivation: access: giving kids a wealth of reading materials and opportunities to discuss texts relevance: offering high interest, moderately challenging and authentic reading experiences choice: allowing students to self-select texts and reading activities What exactly do those principles look like in action? Reading specialist and researcher Barbara Marinak shares the strategies and techniques that make a difference for student readers' motivation, turning disengaged readers into passionate ones. "Pizza and Pez dispensers are short lived," Linda and Barbara write, "but confident and empowered readers are likely to remain motivated for life."

"Just as word learning is incremental, so is learning about vocabulary instruction. Teachers need exposure to research, best-practice strategies, and fellow practitioners." -Charlene Cobb and Camille Blachowicz The way we've learned influences the way we teach, but the vocabulary instruction many of us received-looking up words and writing sentences or completing worksheets- just doesn't work. So what can we do instead? No More "Look Up the List" Vocabulary Instruction is your guide to engaging, research-proven practices for teaching words effectively. Practitioner Charlene Cobb and researcher Camille Blachowicz share why old-fashioned methods don't work, what the research shows does work, and how to put the research into action. Charlene and Camille answer teachers' most commonly asked questions about vocabulary instruction, including: How many words, and how do I select them? How can I foster student independence using dictionaries and glossaries? How do I find time for meaningful vocabulary instruction? How can I assess and hold students accountable? "Without practice in the full range of ways we use a word," write Charlene and Camille, "our word knowledge is limited and falls from our grasp as the next cycle of words enters." No More "Look Up the List" Vocabulary Instruction offers a solution-deepen students' engagement with words, increase their exposure to them, and expand their word knowledge.

The research is compelling: when teachers differentiate reading instruction, students learn more. But teachers are too often given the expectation of differentiation without the details on how to make it work. In No More Reading Instruction Without Differentiation, Debra Peterson and Lynn Bigelman offer an instructional framework that adapts instruction based on individual students needs and interests. Peterson unpacks the research that supports differentiated instruction. Then veteran school principal Bigelman shows how to implement differentiation using: - Learning Targets & Performance Tasks - Student Self-Assessment - Talk to Assess & Deepen Student Understanding - Workshop: A Daily Structure for Differentiation - Project-Based Learning - Conferring - Individual Learning Goals - Intervention Planning Differentiation doesn't mean creating separate lesson plans for each student every day. Differentiation is responsive teaching that identifies what each student knows and can do and what can happen next to move that student forward in her learning. In this book, you'll find the tools and strategies to better meet the needs of the children in your classroom right now.
