Literacy Techniques For Teachers And Parents from the Author: Peter Edwards. The main aim of the book is to present 50 key literacy techniques for instructional purposes, in outline and graphic form, which preserve the essential elements of each technique. Literacy Techniques is designed to assist literacy instruction in four main ways: 1. The 50 literacy techniques represent a major 'knowledge base' for individuals who need to develop effective teaching techniques in literacy. 2. The 50 literacy techniques have been carefully selected from a wide range of resources in the field. Most of the techniques are not available in a single publication. 3. The 50 literacy techniques act as an up-date for individuals who are not currently aware of the latest instructional developments in the field. 4. The over 50 web sites provide access to an enormous amount of literacy resources that can be used in the classroom and in the home. A major benefit of using the book is that it provides summaries of literacy techniques that can be quickly applied to a variety of learning situations. The book can be used by undergraduate and graduate students, by pre-service and practicing teachers, as well as other caregivers involved in home schooling, family literacy, or working as literacy volunteers. The techniques enable them to use interesting and valuable activities to strengthen and encourage their students to achieve their full learning potential. The literacy techniques are not intended for use solely with remedial readers. They include ideas suitable for use with primary, elementary, middle and high school students, as well as with students requiring special assistance or acceleration in their programs. A wide variety of hands-on activities, including the use of computer programs, is a natural follow-up to most of the techniques included in Literacy Technique: For Teachers and Parents.

New Ways To Engage Parents from the Author: Patricia Edwards. Just as populations change, ideas about how to encourage and work with parents also need to evolve. This practical resource by bestselling author Patricia Edwards provides school leaders and classroom teachers with new and creative ways in which to welcome, encourage, and involve parents. Enacting these types of practices requires a special kind of commitment from teachers and school leaders, which often coincides with a particular kind of mindset about families and one’s responsibility to engage them. Educators often develop this mindset as they deepen their understanding of families, literacy/language, culture/race/class, and themselves. Edwards pulls these understandings together and presents them in a straightforward, concise, and easy-to-use guide that is perfect for professional learning communities and teacher preparation courses. New Ways to Engage Parents is essential reading for all educators who care deeply about engaging a wide range of parents in today’s schools. “It is my hope that this book inspires teachers to seek ways to make schools more equitable and caring spaces for all children.” —From the Foreword by Catherine Compton-Lilly, University of Wisconsin–Madison “Long a leader in the field, Professor Patricia Edwards reinforces the fact that education is a shared responsibility of home, school, and community. She presents scores of practical ideas and resources to enable educators to involve all parents in their children’s education.” —Joyce L. Epstein, Johns Hopkins University “Finally, a book that brings partnering with parents into the 21st century! This is a book teachers will want to keep at their fingertips.” —Jeanne R. Paratore, Boston University
