Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Block (education, Texas Christian U.) and Mangieri (Institute for Literacy Enhancement, Charlotte, North Carolina) present a practical guide for teachers and other education professionals to promoting literacy achievement at every grade level. Covering six key areas of literacy instruction--dominant teaching roles, responsibilities, and talents; motivation; reteaching; relating to students; classroom qualities; lesson characteristics--the text describes practices of exemplary teachers, and invites readers to assess their existing strengths and build their competencies in the six areas. For the second edition, the material has been revised and updated throughout, including the expansion from the original K-5 emphasis to now include coverage for all levels, from K-12; the addition of materials for literacy coaches and administrators, as well as teachers; the incorporation of new "Teacher-in-Action" cases demonstrating exemplary practices; and inclusion of new or revised activities and reproducibles.
