I am leading a group of teachers in transforming their reading teaching by using the strategies that the work of Zimmerman and Keene (amongst others) advocates in Mosaic of Thought. Do you do similar…Continue

I 've been using a combination of approaches to reading. I have used reader's workshop to teach reading comprehension, when dealing with books. I also try to select different kinds of texts which are connected to the theme(s) we're dealing with. I teach ESL students ages 12 - 16. However, I would appreciate getting more ideas from you all.

Any ideas of using technology to help with early literacy? I'm taking a course on technology and teaching and want to focus on early literacy.

I am a new K-6 teacher from Australia who is passionate about developing strong literacy skills in my students. I am keen to learn as much as I can about the teaching of reading from experienced teachers.

I am here to share the resources that I have collected for the past ten years. During my 32 year teaching career I taught Social Studies, Language Arts, Computers and later served as the school's teacher-librarian.

I am now a new teacher mentor and tech integrator trainer at my district, but prior to that taught 3,4, and 6th grade. My last job in the classroom was reading teacher and we were able to rewrite the curriculum so that it included the 'big eight' reading strategies (taken from Mosaic of Thought by Zimmerman and Keene). The curriculum is now explicit reading strategy instruction- using short stories, short nonfiction pieces, and excerpts for novels. It makes so much sense and is amazing to see how students can improve their comprehension by using their 'conversation voice' (from Cris Tovani). Exciting stuff
Comment by Melanie Hutchinson on October 31, 2009 at 6:17pm
I'm looking forward to some reading conversations. I find the teaching of reading fascinating, challenging and addictive. My one teaching assignment is first grade reading- and I have enjoyed teaching the beginners and the advanced. I am a curriculum coordinator and I am currently leading my lower school faculty in a review of teaching reading- focusing on comprehension strategies. We all read Mosaic of Thought (Zimmerman and Keene) and Reading with Meaning (Miller) and are now transforming our teaching. Exciting to see it occur.

How to Recognize the "Fluff" and Tips to Avoid It

An attractive piece of writing speaks for itself. It is clear, competent and disseminates only the necessary information. But is this always the case with all writers? The answer is apparent. A good number of writers are victims of writing content full of fluff. Fluff boarders on words that are meaningless to content being written. When fluff is evident in writing, it becomes difficult to understand the message, read…See More
