As elegantly practical as it is theoretically elegant. It is a guided tour, as one examines the tools of expert teachers as they engage students in a journey that is aptly dubbed Reading Apprenticeship?learning how to become a savvy, strategic reader under the tutelage of thoughtful, caring, and demanding teachers.? P. David Pearson, University of California, Berkeley, and founding editor of the Handbook of Reading Research. Reading for Understanding is a monumental achievement. It was a monumental achievement when it came out as a first edition in 1999, bringing years of rigorous reading research together in a framework for teaching that made sense in actual secondary school classrooms. Now, just thirteen years later, Schoenbach and Greenleaf have several randomized clinical trials and multiple on-going studies at their fingertips to demonstrate the effects of this approach for developing the reading and thinking of young people in our nation?s middle and high school classrooms, as well as in community college classrooms. Their careful work on developing disciplinary literacy among all students represents a passion for and commitment to supporting students?and their teachers?in reading for understanding, which translates to reading for enjoyment, self-awareness, learning, and for purposeful and informed action in our society. ?Elizabeth Moje, Arthur F. Thurnau Professor and Associate Dean for Research, School of Education, University of Michigan Reading Apprenticeship has proven to be an inspiration to Renton Technical College faculty and students alike. They have learned together to view themselves as readers in transformative ways, as they embrace powerful techniques to increase reading comprehension. The ideas and strategies in Reading for Understanding anchor this new and broad-based energy around reading and an enthusiasm among our faculty to model effective reading strategies for our students. ?Steve Hanson, President, Renton Technical College, Renton, Washington Reading for Understanding has the finest blend I have seen of research, strategies, and classroom vignettes to deepen teacher learning and help them connect the dots between theory and practice. ?Curtis Refior, Content Area Literacy Coach, Fowlerville Community Schools, Fowlerville, Michigan A teacher-tested, research-based resource for dramatically improving reading skills Published in partnership with WestEd, this significantly updated second edition of the bestselling book contains strategies for helping students in middle school through community college gain the reading independence to master subject area textbooks and other material. Based on the Reading Apprenticeship program, which three rigorous gold standard" research studies have shown to be effective in raising students' reading achievement Presents a clear framework for improving the reading and subject area learning of all students, including English learners, students with special needs, as well as those in honors and AP courses Provides concrete tools for classroom use and examples from a range of classrooms Presents a clear how-to for teachers implementing the subject area literacies of the Common Core Standards Reading for Understanding proves it's never too late for teachers and students to work together to boost literacy, engagement, and achievement.

Reading academic texts that include mainly university textbooks has been a challenge for EAP readers. There are various reasons for this difficulty; however, linguistic elements were investigated in this work. This work aims at finding out whether academic texts’ lexical richness is the main cause of their difficulty, or their syntactic complexity, whether lexical richness of the readers would be a more potent predictor of their academic reading comprehension, or their ability for processing complex syntactic structures. Results indicated that syntactic complexity could be regarded as influential as lexical richness in the difficulty of academic texts. Ability in processing complex syntactic structures can be considered as effective a predictor of academic reading comprehension as lexical richness. Therefore, lexical richness may no longer be supposed as the single predictor of reading comprehension, especially academic reading performance.

This study aimed to investigate the effects of socio-affective strategies in enhancement of reading comprehension in Iranian EFL learners. For this purpose, the study adopted a quasi-experimental design with a proficiency test to find the homogeneity of groups. Furthermore, two classes were selected as the experimental and control groups (n =60), and the experimental group was conducted by social-affective strategies items. Participants attended in six sessions of the making learners familiar with advantages of social-affective strategies and their effects on improvement of learners' reading comprehension. Experimental group received different strategies and its sub categories. Then, the researcher taught and employed those strategies by applying them in reading comprehension texts. Learners' activities and their strong interest showed that they like teaching by employing socio/affective strategies and the progress was measured during the six sessions of employing those strategies in responding to reading questions. An independent t-test, paired sample, and ANCOVA, procedures were applied to find the results in statistics and showed that socio/affective strategies were effective an

According to some unofficial researches and my own experience in the field of teaching reading skill , I have found that some students had many problems when they were being asked to read some online text especially when they were supposed to participate in an on-line reading comprehension test. So I tried to find out the reason or reasons of this problem. The first probability for this problem was that the difference between on-line and off-line environment influenced the students' performance in an on-line reading comprehension test. The second probability that I have made for this problem was that having a high level of IT literacy had any effect on the performance of students in the on-line reading comprehension test or not. And the last hypothesis for investigating the reason of this problem was that students may have employed inappropriate strategies while they were reading on-line. All these probabilities and hypotheses have led the researcher toward formulating the null hypotheses of this study. The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of on-line Reading strategies on the choice of off-line Reading strategies of Iranian Intermediate EFL Learners.

In Literacy Strategies for Grades 4-12: Reinforcing the Threads of Reading, Karen Tankersley provides a multiplicity of practical, research-based reading strategies tailored specifically for use with older students. These students may no longer have a reading class as part of the school day, but they are still developing their reading skills--and every teacher contributes to that effort. As in her previous book, The Threads of Reading: Strategies for Literacy Development, Tankersley here focuses on the six foundational "threads" necessary for effective reading--phonemic awareness, phonics and decoding, vocabulary, fluency, comprehension, and higher-order thinking--only this time with a focus on the last four threads, which are especially pertinent to the higher grades. By examining the criteria necessary for success in each thread, she shows how we can better teach struggling readers to Develop and expand on content-specific vocabulary. Read text accurately, smoothly, and with proper phrasing. Extract and construct meaning through reading. Critically evaluate, synthesize, analyze, and interpret text.The book includes a broad array of exercises, from individualized 15-minute projects to semester-long whole-class assignments. In addition to addressing the needs of older students, these strategies can be used to help teach English language learners the rudiments of reading in English. They are easy for teachers to implement, fun for students to do, and most importantly, ...

This book shows how schools can–and must–develop expertise in «learning variation» (understanding how different kinds of minds learn) and apply this knowledge to classroom instruction in order to address the chronic learning challenges and achievement gap faced by millions of students. Barringer shows how using what we know about learning variation with a focus on discovering learning strengths, not just deficits, can help schools create plans for success for those students who often find it elusive. The book specifically addresses how school leaders can incorporate this knowledge into instructional practice and school-level policy through various professional development strategies. Schools for All Kinds of Minds: Provides a readable synthesis of the latest research from neuroscience, cognitive science, and child and adolescent development as it relates to understanding learning and its many variations. Links this information to strategies for understanding struggling learners and adapting school practices to accommodate a wider array of learning differences in a classroom.

Includes discussion questions and facilitator guidelines for staff developers and teacher education programs; downloadable forms that accompany exercises from within the book; an action plan for schools to implement the ideas found in the book; and more.

How much do you know about the innumerable and amazing connections that your mind is making as you, in a flash, make sense of this request? Why does it matter? The Reading Mind is a brilliant, beautifully crafted, and accessible exploration of arguably life's most important skill: reading. Daniel T. Willingham, the bestselling author of Why Don't Students Like School?, offers a perspective that is rooted in contemporary cognitive research. He deftly describes the incredibly complex and nearly instantaneous series of events that occur from the moment a child sees a single letter to the time they finish reading. The Reading Mind explains the fascinating journey from seeing letters, then words, sentences, and so on, with the author highlighting each step along the way. This resource covers every aspect of reading, starting with two fundamental processes: reading by sight and reading by sound. It also addresses reading comprehension at all levels, from reading for understanding at early levels to inferring deeper meaning from texts and novels in high school. The author also considers the undeniable connection between reading and writing, as well as the important role of motivation as it relates to reading. Finally, as a cutting-edge researcher, Willingham tackles the intersection of our rapidly changing technology and its effects on learning to read and reading. Every teacher, reading specialist, literacy coach, and school administrator will find this book invaluable. Understanding the fascinating science behind the magic of reading is essential for every educator. Indeed, every «reader» will be captivated by the dynamic but invisible workings of their own minds.

Peggy Jordan Academic Advising Approaches. Strategies That Teach Students to Make the Most of College

4260.73 руб.
Strong academic advising has been found to be a key contributor to student persistence (Center for Public Education, 2012), and many are expected to play an advising role, including academic, career, and faculty advisors; counselors; tutors; and student affairs staff. Yet there is little training on how to do so. Various advising strategies exist, each of which has its own proponents. To serve increasingly complex higher education institutions around the world and their diverse student cohorts, academic advisors must understand multiple advising approaches and adroitly adapt them to their own student populations. Academic Advising Approaches outlines a wide variety of proven advising practices and strategies that help students master the necessary skills to achieve their academic and career goals. This book embeds theoretical bases within practical explanations and examples advisors can use in answering fundamental questions such as: What will make me a more effective advisor? What can I do to enhance student success? What conversations do I need to initiate with my colleagues to improve my unit, campus, and profession? Linking theory with practice, Academic Advising Approaches provides an accessible reference useful to all who serve in an advising role. Based upon accepted theories within the social sciences and humanities, the approaches covered include those incorporating developmental, learning-centered, appreciative, proactive, strengths-based, Socratic, and hermeneutic advising as well as those featuring advising as teaching, motivational interviewing, self-authorship, and advising as coaching. All advocate relationship-building as a means to encourage students to take charge of their own academic, personal, and professional progress. This book serves as the practice-based companion to Academic Advising: A Comprehensive Handbook, also from NACADA. Whereas the handbook addresses the concepts advisors and advising administrators need to know in order to build a success advising program, Academic Advising Approaches explains the delivery strategies successful advisors can use to help students make the most of their college experience.

8139 руб.
Over the past 30 years, China has enjoyed the longest and most rapid economic development in history. As part of that phenomenon, Chinese companies such as Lenovo, Huawei and Haier have in recent years increasingly stepped up their internationalization efforts in order to compete globally. Despite the huge business impact and future implications, there is little academic literature on globalization trend of Chinese companies from a corporate strategic perspective, since most of the existing literature derives from a macro-economic standpoint. This book therefore provides a pioneering and refreshing analysis of the global corporate strategies and development of two of the largest Chinese companies (Huawei & ZTE), in one of the most fast-paced industries (telecommunications). Using a proven analysis framework, key characteristics of the globalization strategies of Chinese companies were identified and analyzed. This book aims to shed some light on corporate strategies of Chinese companies with global aspirations, and should be especially useful to senior executives in multinational companies, or anyone else interested in understanding Chinese corporate behavior and global strategies.

It adopts a coherent structure that deals initially with the characteristics and strategies of females, before covering those of males, cooperative societies and hominid societies. It reviews our current understanding both of the structure of societies and of the strategies of individuals; it combines coverage of relevant areas of theory with coverage of interspecific comparisons, intraspecific comparisons and experiments; it explores both evolutionary causes of different traits and their ecological consequences; and it integrates research on different groups of mammals with research on primates and humans and attempts to put research on human societies into a broader perspective.

This volume addresses questions such as these and presents cutting edgeresearch and theory that explores how readers determine text relevance (i.e., the different values they assignto information as they read), how relevance affects understanding, and the implications of these studies fortheories of text comprehension.This volume documents in a compelling manner the ongoing international effort to understand how textrelevance affects reading and comprehension.

The purpose of the dissertation is to analyze the methodology which is employed in a reading class within a Chinese college's English context. Consequently, I will suggest solutions to the problems.The PPP approach is used in the previously used lesson plans, form and accuracy are the focus and classroom management is easily achieved. However, free communication and the use of reading skills and strategies are not encouraged. Therefore, I will explore ways to implement a task-based approach in reading to make reading more communicative.The dissertation starts with a description of my context and outline of my research. This is followed by a literature review about the PPP approach, the task-based approach and reading, then previously used lesson plans are analyzed as my data. A checklist which integrates the task-based approach and reading skills and strategies is designed. Based on the evaluation of previously used lesson plans, new ones are designed to implement the task-based approach to reading. The rationale and evaluation of the new lesson plans are discussed. At the end of the study, the limitations of the study are stated, together with suggestions for future research.

As elegantly practical as it is theoretically elegant. It is a guided tour, as one examines the tools of expert teachers as they engage students in a journey that is aptly dubbed Reading Apprenticeship?learning how to become a savvy, strategic reader under the tutelage of thoughtful, caring, and demanding teachers.? P. David Pearson, University of California, Berkeley, and founding editor of the Handbook of Reading Research. Reading for Understanding is a monumental achievement. It was a monumental achievement when it came out as a first edition in 1999, bringing years of rigorous reading research together in a framework for teaching that made sense in actual secondary school classrooms. Now, just thirteen years later, Schoenbach and Greenleaf have several randomized clinical trials and multiple on-going studies at their fingertips to demonstrate the effects of this approach for developing the reading and thinking of young people in our nation?s middle and high school classrooms, as well as in community college classrooms. Their careful work on developing disciplinary literacy among all students represents a passion for and commitment to supporting students?and their teachers?in reading for understanding, which translates to reading for enjoyment, self-awareness, learning, and for purposeful and informed action in our society. ?Elizabeth Moje, Arthur F. Thurnau Professor and Associate Dean for Research, School of Education, University of Michigan Reading Apprenticeship has proven to be an inspiration to Renton Technical College faculty and students alike. They have learned together to view themselves as readers in transformative ways, as they embrace powerful techniques to increase reading comprehension. The ideas and strategies in Reading for Understanding anchor this new and broad-based energy around reading and an enthusiasm among our faculty to model effective reading strategies for our students. ?Steve Hanson, President, Renton Technical College, Renton, Washington Reading for Understanding has the finest blend I have seen of research, strategies, and classroom vignettes to deepen teacher learning and help them connect the dots between theory and practice. ?Curtis Refior, Content Area Literacy Coach, Fowlerville Community Schools, Fowlerville, Michigan A teacher-tested, research-based resource for dramatically improving reading skills Published in partnership with WestEd, this significantly updated second edition of the bestselling book contains strategies for helping students in middle school through community college gain the reading independence to master subject area textbooks and other material. Based on the Reading Apprenticeship program, which three rigorous gold standard" research studies have shown to be effective in raising students' reading achievement Presents a clear framework for improving the reading and subject area learning of all students, including English learners, students with special needs, as well as those in honors and AP courses Provides concrete tools for classroom use and examples from a range of classrooms Presents a clear how-to for teachers implementing the subject area literacies of the Common Core Standards Reading for Understanding proves it's never too late for teachers and students to work together to boost literacy, engagement, and achievement.
