Allmänna fakta




Twice before, Carol Lyons and Gay Su Pinnell teamed up as coauthors and helped tens of thousands of literacy educators transform classroom practice. Now, with their latest collaboration, Lyons and Pinnell turn their eye to K-6 literacy teachers' professional development, offering the theories, designs, guidelines, examples, and materials needed to bring about schoolwide, long-lasting change.
Lyons and Pinnell asked themselves: "What if we could create more and better ways for teachers to learn from their own teaching? What if we could provide high-quality, ongoing professional development and coaching for literacy teachers that result in improving their students' achievement?" Well, they could . . . and they did.

Systems for Change offers specific - and, quite often, unique - suggestions for planning and implementing a literacy professional development course. Everything is covered, including how to get started the right way, what materials are needed and where to find them, what are the best activities for effective, hands-on practice, and how to develop K-6 inservice courses throughout the year. Particular emphasis is placed on how to help teachers of the reading and writing processes improve via coaching.

Most books about teacher-education processes are generic in their descriptions. This one is different. It is uniquely designed to enable staff developers and teacher educators to help teachers become effective in their teaching of the reading and writing processes. A framework for conceptualizing professional development programs is presented, along with guidelines, descriptions, and examples for using this framework to create a comprehensive K-6 professional development literacy program.

Strategies for helping children read with ease, confidence and understanding
Melanie1 | Jun 21, 2011 |
Children want to make their mark - on paper, on any surface, in life. But the difficulties of transferring words to paper can be daunting enough to drown out even the most enthusiastic voice. Enter interactive writing, a new instructional approach in which teachers and children collaborate to produce a written text. Just as Fountas and Pinnell did in their best-selling Guided Reading, the authors offer powerful first teaching designed to accelerate and support children's critical understanding of the writing process.
Interactive Writing is specifically focused on the early phases of writing, and has special relevance to prekindergarten, kindergarten, grade 1 and 2 teachers. In a clear, step-by-step format, the authors show how teachers can use interactive writing to teach a range of foundational literacy skills by sharing the pen with young writers:

letter learning
phonological and orthographic awareness
learning the nature of words
building a writing vocabulary
learning concepts about print
organizing and composing narrative and expository text.
Important features include a rich array of examples of children's writing, down-to-earth practical advice, suggestions for using children's literature and art in the writing program, numerous photos of children's work, and suggestions for professional development. Additionally, there are thorough descriptions of how interactive writing can be used as a tool for inquiry across the curriculum - in content areas as well as in literature. With this kind of broad application, children can grow to see writing as a lifelong tool for learning - and see themselves as writers, right from the start.
The book is filled with practical information on how to get started with interactive writing, with explicit details from specific materials to fine teaching points.

This edited collection is a rich extension of Fountas and Pinnell's instructional system for word study, featuring chapters by the field's most important scholars and practitioners. These educators explore letter and word learning in a variety of reading, writing, and language contexts-with articles that range from detailed observations of individual readers and writers to full-scale analyses of classroom processes and student work. The book includes practical information on how to engage in interactive writing and shared reading, how to use a word wall and word sorting, and how to use effective assessment tools.

Special guest authors include: Billie J. Askew - David Booth - Diane E. DeFord - Dorothy P. Hall and Patricia M. Cunningham - Justina Henry - Susan Hundley and Diane Powell - Carol B. Jenkins - Carol A. Lyons - Andrea McCarrier and Ida Patacca - William Stokes - Sandra Wilde - Barbara Joan Wiley - Jerry Zutell.
