Teaching Advanced Literacy Skills: A Guide for Leaders in Linguistically Diverse Schools
Lesaux, Nonie K.; Galloway, Emily Phillips; Marietta, Sky H.
In our knowledge-based society, K-8 students need to develop increasingly sophisticated skills to read, write, and speak for a wide variety of purposes and audiences. Including an extended case example from a linguistically diverse school, this book guides school leaders to design and implement advanced literacy instruction through four key shifts: strengthening the instructional core, giving data a central role, using a shared curriculum, and providing supportive and tailored professional development. Reproducible forms and templates facilitate planning and implementation of schoolwide initiatives. Purchasers get access to a Web page where they can download and print the reproducible materials in a convenient 8 1/2" x 11" size. A list of references and an index are included.
