Description : This special issue is a "how to" on overcoming the many systems-level challenges in K–12 public education to implement effective reading interventions for the vast numbers of students reading below grade level. It emphasizes building researcher–practitioner partnerships, providing ongoing professional development for teachers, and removing institutional barriers to change as the keys to effective reading intervention. Interventions for the upper grades focus on the challenges of coaxing content-area teachers to learn new routines for building background knowledge, teaching academic vocabulary, and conducting discussions to foster critical reading and knowledge application. In the primary grades, interventions follow a multi-tiered system of support where enhanced classroom instruction is supported by small-group intervention for struggling readers. The volume also discusses the importance of training special educators to implement data-based individuation. This is the 154th volume in this Jossey-Bass series New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development. Its mission is to provide scientific and scholarly presentations on cutting edge issues and concepts in this subject area. Each volume focuses on a specific new direction or research topic and is edited by experts from that field.

Description : Secondary School Reading presents carefully thought out, practical strategies for promoting the development of reading skills at the post-elementary level. Practical applications are presented through their relationship to the theoretical conception of the total reading-learning process as they relate to the learner's needs. Reading instruction in the secondary school is essentially different than elementary instruction in the school. The older young people have different needs and interests and utilize different cognitive strategies. This volume presents strategies for older learners which reflects a thorough knowledge of both reading and teaching, as well as many years of experience in teaching this level. Secondary School Reading is a good blend of theoretical constructs and practical application. Its examples offer the teacher many ideas for learning activities. Its appendices direct the reader to many sources of information and teaching materials.

Description : ""What kids are reading : the book-reading habits of students in British Schools" is the first report to provide detailed information on the books school children are actually reading. Online booksellers have lists of books that are sold and librarians can say what books are borrowed, but neither can tell you if any of these books was ever opened or read cover to cover ... On the following pages you will find information about the top 20 books read in the year 2007-2008 by school children across the UK. This is given by their year in school, since obviously patterns of reading differ greatly between years. Then there is some investigation of differences in each year according to gender. Finally, there is exploration of what books the most able readers are reading." -- p. [4]
