What is in the best interest of our students? Is it teaching to the newest standards movement, like the Common Core? Teaching that prepares students to take a test? Or is it something more meaningful and authentic? In his new book, In the Best Interest of Students, Kelly Gallagher notes that there are real strengths in the Common Core standards, and there are significant weaknesses as well. He takes the long view, reminding us that standards come and go but what remains constant is the need to stay true to what we know works in the teaching of reading, writing, speaking and listening. Instead of blindly adhering to the latest standards movement, Kelly advocates: · Dialing up the amount of reading and writing students are doing. · Balancing rigorous, high-quality literature and non-fiction with high-interest, student-selected titles. · Giving students much more choice when it comes to reading and writing activities. · Encouraging readers to deepen their comprehension by moving beyond the "four corners of the text." · Using modeling to enrich students' writing skills in the prewriting, drafting, and revision stages. · Helping young writers to achieve more authenticity through the blending of genres. · Resisting the de-emphasis of narrative and imaginative reading and writing. · Providing students with more opportunities to sharpen their listening and speaking skills · Planning lessons that move beyond Common Core expectations. In this provocative and insightful new book, Kelly surveys the teaching landscape since the publication of his highly regarded book Readicide, and finds that although some progress has been made, more needs to be done. Amid the frenzy of trying to teach to a new set of standards, Kelly Gallagher is a strong voice of reason, reminding us that instruction should be anchored around one guiding question: What is in the best interest of our students?

In this expansive survey, David Booth, one of our foremost authorities on teaching literacy, answers real questions from teachers like you about turning research and theory into effective best practice. Teachers will find the answers they need and can use on almost any topic from phonics and word walls for beginning readers to guided reading, literature circles, and writing journals and workshops for more confident readers;from using traditional texts to comics, songs and the Internet to cover the complete gamut of the new literacies;from using testing as a teaching tool to creating a classroom community that is both diverse and welcoming. But Literacy 101 is more than just a guide — it’s also the compelling story of one teacher’s journey through literacy. David writes frankly about what has worked and not worked for him over the years, and how what looks good on paper may need to be adapted for a real classroom.

High-school writing prompts often ask students to provide overly simplified responses to complicated issues, but a person’s stance in the real world can rarely, if ever, be reduced to “agree or disagree.” Arguments are complex, with more than two points of view and a range of evidence to consider; however, writing classes don’t always embrace that complexity. Real Writing: Modernizing the Old School Essay contends that engaging fully with complex texts and difficult, nuanced arguments helps students become better thinkers and writers, more fully prepared for life both in and after high school.

It offers a comprehensive framework for the creation and implementation of one’s own authentic and effective ELA curriculum. In addition to strategies for preservice teachers to develop their own pedagogies, lessons, and teaching techniques, Costigan also demonstrates how to design tools for teaching in the current testing- and standards-driven context of the educational reform movement. Containing real-life examples of reading and writing instruction, this book empowers preservice teachers to translate the concepts of curriculum design to actual ELA classroom practices that will engage students.

ما الذي يريد أن يعرفه قادة المدارس؟ في هذا الكتاب يعتمد توماس ر. هور على خبرته التي تزيد عن 25 عاماً في قيادة المدرسة ويقدم نصيحته التي لا تقدر بثمن حول إدارة المدرسة، فيتناول التحديات الماثلة أمام قادة المدارس من تقييم عمل المعلمين إلى التعامل مع أهالي الطلبة، ومن إدارة الاجتماعات إلى صنع الفرق، فيقدم لنا إستراتيجياته التي أثبت نجاحها. يقول هور: إن القيادة مبنية على العلاقات، وأفضل الإداريين يدعمون العمل في الفريق الواحد القائم على الزمالة ويثمنون التنوع ويشجعون كل من يحيط بهم؛ لكي ينمو ويتطور. يستعين بأمثلة من مدرسته التي يقودها فيلخص لنا الوسائل التي تجعل القائد أكثر تأثيراً ويخلق ثقافة التعلم. كما يبحث في كتابه هذا في تاريخ القيادة ومستقبلها، حيث يركز على الطريقة التي يتبعها المربون في سبيل تقدم المدارس. إن كتاب فن القيادة المدرسية، الذي يضم بين دفتيه ما يزيد عن 100 جملة مقتبسة مما قاله التربويون في مختلف أنحاء العالم يشكل وصفاً حياً مفعماً بالأفكار حول ما تقتضيه قيادة المدرسة. «من خلال روحه المرحة والممتعة واستقامته وصدق كلامه الذي يخلو من الرطانة الغريبة يكتسب هور المصداقية والاحترام. إن وصفه للحياة داخل المدرسة يجد صدى له في خبرات معظم المعلمين والإداريين وأهالي الطلبة.» رولاند بارت. العبيكان للنشر

When I was little, not so long ago, my brother, Sami, our friends and I played on sunbaked soil. We laughed, ran across rocks and sand, free as birds. Then the birds stopped singing. People began to leave our village. First a trickle, then a stream, across dusty fields under a burning sun, a stream driven by hope. Mothers, fathers, children, seeking a better place, a better life.Rama and her family are forced to leave behind everything they know and love. With only what they can carry on their backs, Rama's family sets out to find refuge in Europe. Syrian artist Nizar Ali Badr's stunning stone images illustrate Margriet Ruurs's thoughtful and moving story.

إذا وجِدَ كتاب يستحق أن يقرأه المراهقون وأولياء الأمور (وأي شخص آخر)، فهو هذا الكتاب - صحيفة دنفر بوست. ميلودي، 11 عامًا، تملك ذاكرة مرآتية، ورأسها مثل آلة تصوير سينمائية تسجل طوال الوقت، ولكن لا يوجد فيها زر للحذف؛ كانت أذكى طفلة في مدرستها، ولكن لم يكن أي إنسان يعرف ذلك؛ فقد اعتقد معظم الناس، ومنهم المعلمون والأطباء، أنها غير قادرة على التعلُّم، وكانت أيام المدرسة - حتى وقت قريب - تمر وهي تستمع باستمرار إلى دروس أحرف الهجاء لمستوى الروضة مرة تلو الأخرى؛ تمنَّت لو أنها تستطيع الصراخ... لو أنها تستطيع إخبار من حولها كيف تفكر، وماذا تعرف؛ لكنها لا تستطيع؛ لأنها لا تقدر على الكلام، ولا تستطيع المشي ولا الكتابة. كانت أشياء كثيرة حبيسة في رأسها ولا تستطيع التعبير عنها، وهذا ما كان يسبب لها الجنون - إلى أن اكتشفت شيئًا جعلها تتكلم لأول مرة في حياتها؛ أخيرًا، أصبح لها صوت، لكن لا يوجد أحد ممن حولها يريد سماعه! العبيكان 2017
