Book Title: The Reading Turn-Around: A Five Part Framework for Differentiated Instruction (Practitioner's Bookshelf) (The Practitioner's Bookshelf)
Publisher: Teachers College Press
Author: Stephanie Jones
This book outlines a five-part framework for teachers, reading specialists, and literacy coaches who want to help their least engaged students become powerful readers. Merging theory and practice, the book offers practical strategies that elementary school teachers can use with struggling readers. The authors argue that teachers must learn to turn-around their own teaching practice, beginning with reading materials, lessons, and activities based around their students interests. Chapters include exercises that will help teachers analyze their reading instruction, as well as practical advice for working with English Language Learners.
