Teachers Reading Teachers Lives from the Author: Mary Kay Rummel. Investigates teachers' classroom personal reading histories and how they influence the development of one becoming a resisting reader/teacher. "The premise of this book is important: that teachers' literacy experiences not only make a difference in their literacy instruction but also in their professional judgment and actions related to curriculum decisions, and their resistance to prescribed methods and materials which do not allow children's literacy to flourish. The teachers' own words in the autobiographical chapters offer powerful testimony supporting approaches to literacy that encourage and support the job of reading and writing, rather than pedantic and meaningless curriculum methods that emphasize isolated skills and drills. "There is currently a backlash against the whole language approach, which through the years has had other titles but has always emphasized the creative, responsive teaching described in meaningful, individual, integrated and joyful approaches to the teaching of reading and writing. This book could have a positive influence on the current discussions about the teaching of literacy.

But, how do you find the time to navigate through the endless lists of apps online to find apps that are appropriate for your student, or the students that you teach? This book provides a description of apps that promote learning across a number of areas for students with special needs in grades K to 12. The apps are organized by instructional focus, and by whether they were developed to : help the student practice the skill, support the student if they have difficulties with that skill, or create amazing learning objects using that skill. The apps are also identified as being at the beginning, intermediate, or more complex level. The content areas of read, writing, and math, focus on the development of skills up to the grade 6 level. The support and creation apps, and that apps that focus on study skills and strategies, provide many opportunities for students at the middle and high school level. The book is very simple to use. Just go through the skill checklists and identify the skills that the student demonstrates never, sometimes, or always. The skill checklists cover: sensory motor/cause and effect; fine motor skills; written expression; reading; mathematics; language; social and behavioral skills; and study skills. For the skills that the student has not yet mastered, look up the page number provided, to find the apps that will help that student with that specific skill. Get your student(s) started learning on the iPad. You will be AMAZED at the possibilities, and so will the student(s).

A Practice Based Model Of Stem Teaching from the Author: Alpaslan Sahin. The STEM Students on the Stage (SOS)TM model was developed by Harmony Public Schools with the goal of teaching rigorous content in an engaging, fun and effective way. In this book, you will learn that the STEM SOS model is not only helping students learn STEM content and develop 21st-century skills, but also helping teachers improve their classroom climate through increased student-teacher communication and a reduction in classroom management issues. There are at least two ways in which this book is innovative. First, you will find student videos and websites associated with QR codes; readers can use their QR readers to watch student videos related to the content in the chapter and see student e-portfolio samples at their Google sites. This provides the opportunity to see that what is discussed in the book actually happened. Second, the book is not about a theory; it is an actual implemented model that has evolved through the years and has been used in more than 25 schools since 2012. Every year, the model continues to be improved to increase its rigor and ease of implementation for both teachers and students. In addition to using the book as a classroom teacher resource and guide, it can also be used as a textbook in advanced graduate level curriculum and instruction, educational leadership, and STEM education programs. Therefore, STEM educators, leaders, pre-service and in-service teachers and graduate students will all benefit from reading this book. Appendices will be one of the favorite aspects of this book for teachers who are constantly looking for ready-to-use student and teacher handouts and activities. Full handouts, including formative and summative assessments materials and grading rubrics, will provide an opportunity for teachers and curriculum directors to understand the ideas and secrets behind the STEM SOS model. Lastly, STEM directors will find this to be one of the best STEM teaching model examples on the market because the model has fully accessible student and teacher handouts, assessment materials, rubrics and hundreds of student products (e-portfolios including video presentations and project brochures) online.

Improving Teaching Through Observation And Feedback from the Author: Alyson L. Lavigne. In response to Race to the Top, schools nationwide are rapidly overhauling their teacher evaluation processes. Often forced to develop and implement these programs without adequate extra-institutional support or relevant experience, already-taxed administrators need accessible and practical resources. Improving Teaching through Observation and Feedback brings cutting-edge research and years of practical experience directly to those who need them. In five concise chapters, Thomas Good and Alyson Lavigne briefly outline the history of RttT and then move quickly and authoritatively to a discussion of best practices. This book is a perfect resource for administrators reworking their processes for new evaluation guidelines.
