Synopsis

Reading More, Reading Better by Elfrieda H. Hiebert

Teaching students specific literacy skills is important-but equally critical, and often overlooked, is giving them the time and opportunity to read actual texts. Bringing together leading scholars, this book focuses on how teachers can improve both the quality and quantity of reading experiences in K-12 classrooms. Essential topics include factors that make reading tasks more or less productive for different types of learners, ways to balance independent reading with whole-class and small-group instruction, how to choose appropriate texts, and the connections between reading engagement and proficiency. The relevant research literature is reviewed, and exemplary practices and programs are described.

Reviews

Here is a truly distinctive work that breathes new life into traditional discussions of reading. The authors skillfully rely on scientific research to promote literacy instruction that is holistic, student centered, varied, relevant, and current. The book offers a mosaic of perspectives that will inform novice and experienced teachers, reading specialists, literacy coaches, and administrators about how to best meet the needs of an increasingly diverse student population. - Susan V. Piazza, Assistant Professor of Literacy Studies, Western Michigan University, USA Comprehensive and authoritative, this book includes practical recommendations, research summaries, interesting commentary, and applications for frequently underserved groups, such as students with learning disabilities and English language learners. It will be required reading for anyone interested in productive classroom-based reading experiences that are based in science. - Matthew Burns, Department of Educational Psychology, University of Minnesota; Acting Co-Director, Minnesota Center for Reading Research, USA This book tackles essential issues about how texts are selected and used in schools. It provides a critical and in-depth examination of how texts can be used to empower students and transform how they engage with reading and learning. - Leigh A. Hall, School of Education, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA This volume brings together exemplary scholars to offer the reader a comprehensive view of the correlation between opportunity to read and reading achievement. Each thought-provoking chapter includes powerful insights into providing productive reading experiences. Bridging the gap between theory, research, policy, and practice, this is a perfect choice for graduate courses or teacher study groups. Every reading professional must read this book! - Tabatha Dobson Scharlach, Department of Curriculum and Instruction, University of Central Florida, USA
