Description - Negotiating Literacy Learning by Janine Bixler
Teaching professionals encounter students at varying levels of literacy proficiency and achievement. Negotiating Literacy Learning brilliantly illustrates eight real-life examples of children who struggle with reading, outlining the steps eight master teachers take to diagnose and remediate those problems. The cases shared in this text identify reading difficulties that teachers typically encounter in their classrooms, walking readers through each teacher's method for negotiating learning. Cases are organized in a clear and succinct manner, beginning with assessments followed by an instructional decision-making process to demonstrate a methodology you can follow to ensure that your students reach their literacy potential. This book is for all professionals who believe that teaching requires a commitment to learning from and listening to students in order to improve teaching responses.
