Book Summary:

The concept of "funds of knowledge" is based on a simple premise: people are competent and have knowledge, and their life experiences have given them that knowledge. The claim in this book is that first-hand research experiences with families allow one to document this competence and knowledge, and that such engagement provides many possibilities for positive pedagogical actions. Drawing from both Vygotskian and neo-sociocultural perspectives in designing a methodology that views the everyday practices of language and action as constructing knowledge, the funds of knowledge approach facilitates a systematic and powerful way to represent communities in terms of the resources they possess and how to harness them for classroom teaching. This book accomplishes three objectives: It gives readers the basic methodology and techniques followed in the contributors' funds of knowledge research; it extends the boundaries of what these researchers have done; and it explores the applications to classroom practice that can result from teachers knowing the communities in which they work. In a time when national educational discourses focus on system reform and wholesale replicability across school sites, this book offers a counter-perspective stating that instruction must be linked to students' lives, and that details of effective pedagogy should be linked to local histories and community contexts. This approach should not be confused with parent participation programs, although that is often a fortuitous consequence of the work described. It is also not an attempt to teach parents "how to do school" although that could certainly be an outcome if the parents so desired. Instead, the funds of knowledge approach attempts to accomplish something that may be even more challenging: to alter the perceptions of working-class or poor communities by viewing their households primarily in terms of their strengths and resources, their defining pedagogical characteristics. Funds of Knowledge: Theorizing Practices in Households, Communities, and Classrooms is a critically important volume for all teachers and teachers-to-be, and for researchers and graduate students of language, culture, and education.

Book Summary:

Teaching is as much about students as it is about curriculum, and no one understands this better than middle and high school teachers. But even the most dedicated teacher can sometimes feel defeated by the challenge of reaching distracted, disconnected, and defiant adolescents. Drawing on her own experience as a high school teacher, Katy Ridnouer shares an approach to classroom management that will help you spend less time "dealing with" your adolescent learners and more time inspiring them to be their best selves in school and beyond. Managing with heart means accepting teenage students as they are and recognizing what they need: a connection with the curriculum; a sense of order; and most essentially, a sense that someone cares. In this book, you'll find practical strategies for * Balancing care and discipline * Interacting with students and their parents * Establishing classroom routines that keep students on task * Communicating expectations and ensuring accountability * Handling common challenges, from classroom noise and personality conflicts to inappropriate clothing and disrespectful language * Building trust and helping students feel emotionally and intellectually safe. Vivid, real-life examples and questions for reflection make this a perfect choice for faculty reading groups and any middle or high school teacher looking to create a positive learning community, enhance students' confidence and interpersonal skills, and rediscover the reward of being a teacher.

Book Summary:

Babblings of a Burned Out Teacher, Book Description There are many “experts” in our country that know what is exactly wrong with education, and they have the ideas to make it right. The sad thing is that many of these “experts” have spent very little time, if any in a school. It’s like having an operation with your surgeon only have seen a 15 to 20 second clip on how to complete the operation, if they have seen that much. It’s very easy to sit on the sidelines or in the stands and tell someone what to do and how to do it. That’s today’s society, it’s easier to complain about the situation rather than do something about it. There are plenty of items and people that are wrong with education who are working some how in education. This book discusses many of these people. You have people in every group dealing with education that have their own agenda and will do anything to get their ideas and agenda through. People need to be able to recognize those people who have the “hidden agenda” and get them out of the educational process. Education needs to be the quest for being self-sufficient. The educated person will be able to provide for themselves and their family. Education should provide people with skills to be able to solve problems they encounter. Today’s school systems are more interested in having their students become game show contestants rather than problem solvers. Schools are more interested on making sure students can answer questions on standardized tests, instead of teaching them skills they will be able to use later in life. The short term often is more important that long term, not just in education, but for many facets of life. Education should not be a means to learn how to beat or play the system. I have written several stories that can make you laugh or cry. When you are working with children, you experience many valleys and mountain tops. That’s just the nature of education. I have been in education for the past 25 years in some capacity or another. During this time I’ve been a teacher’s aide to principal in public schools. I have taught students from pre-school students to seniors. The students ranged from severe and profound to students who are quite gifted and talented. I can’t count the number of Individual Education Plans that I have attended. Some of my students could look at a book and get a 100% on a test over the contents of the book without reading it. In education, you teach students who run the spectrum of ability. Reading this book, you need to realize the students are talented in different areas. A student who likes science might not be the best at physical education. Students are just like everyone else in society, they have their own unique skills, talents and abilities. As Americans, we can use these to our advantage. We can find a career that best fits the skills, talents, and abilities we possess. Coaching offered me another aspect of education. Being a coach, you need to be aware of the politics involved. The best part of coaching is working with the student/athlete and other coaches. Practices and games are a blast! You get to get to see and interact with student/athletes in an atmosphere outside of the classroom. A high school coach should not be judged on their win/loss record. Not every team will be a state champion. It’s how the players perform and act on the playing field and in the class room. Most parents think their child is going to be a professional or college athlete in the sport they are doing. It’s the coach’s fault that their child is not getting the scholarship offers they deserve. The school administration could end up being the worst enemy of the coaches. Sometimes they have their personal agenda which they impose on their staff, which includes coaches and other staff members. My post-secondary experience includes being an adjunct instructor, tutor to being English as a Second Language instructor. While teaching at th

Book Summary:

All too often the poorest readers learn that if they keep quiet during sustained silent reading (SSR), they're doing okay—no reading required. This is especially true in middle school where class sizes are large and instructional emphasis is on content rather than reading. In Are They Really Reading?, Jodi Crum Marshall discusses how to find out if your students are using SSR time wisely and what to do about it if they're not. Her book describes how to support middle-grade readers who need it the most, while embracing a research-proven need to increase independent, self-selected reading time for students. Jodi shares lessons and anecdotes from her classroom and from her experience as a reading specialist implementing her model schoolwide. She expands the traditional concepts of SSR to include read-alouds, writing, and accountability to scaffold struggling middle-grade students. Bolstered by these additional supports, Jodi's students dramatically increased their interest and ability in reading through a program they named Supporting Student Literacy (SSL). Classroom teachers will appreciate the clear direction on how and why to implement an SSR program. Administrators will appreciate the guidance for establishing a schoolwide literacy block that substantially improves student motivation and learning. Are They Really Reading? answers the following important questions: Why should I start an SSR program? How do I build a classroom library? Where do I get funding for books and other materials? How do I prepare the students for SSR? How do I motivate students to read? What is the role of the teacher? How do I assess SSR? If you don't currently use a sustained silent reading program, this book will help you get started on the right track. If you worry that some of your students aren't really reading during SSR or if you want to enhance your program, here is a roadmap that is instructionally sound and flexible enough to fit your students' needs.

Book Summary:

Winner of the Grawemeyer Award in Education “The best book on high school dynamics I have ever read.” —Jay Mathews, Washington Post “A hopeful, easy-to-read narrative on what the best teachers do and what deep, engaging learning looks like for students. Grab this text if you’re looking for a celebration of what’s possible in American schools.” —Edutopia “A must-read for anyone interested in the fate of the American high school.” —Linda Darling-Hammond, President and CEO, Learning Policy Institute What would it take to transform our high schools into places capable of supporting deep learning for students across a wide range of aptitudes and interests? To find out, Jal Mehta and Sarah Fine spent hundreds of hours observing and talking to teachers and students in and out of the classroom at thirty of the country’s most innovative schools. To their dismay, they discovered that deeper learning is more often the exception than the rule. And yet they found pockets of powerful learning at almost every school, often in extracurriculars but also in a few mold-breaking academic courses. So what must schools do to achieve the integrations that support deep learning: rigor with joy, precision with play, mastery with identity and creativity? In Search of Deeper Learning takes a deep dive into the state of our schools and lays out an inspiring new vision for American education.
