Harvey Daniels' Literature Circles introduced tens of thousands of teachers to the power of student-led book discussions. Nancy Steineke's Reading and Writing Together showed how a teacher can nurture friendship and collaboration among young readers. Now, Daniels and Steineke team up to focus on one crucial element of the Literature Circle model; the short, teacher-directed lessons that begin, guide and follow-up every successful book club meeting. Mini-lessons are the secret to book clubs that click. Each of these forty-five short, focused, and practical lessons includes Nancy and Harvey's actual classroom language and is formatted to help busy teachers with point-by-point answers to the questions they most frequently ask. How can I: steer my students toward deeper comprehension? get kids interested in each others' ideas? make sure kids choose just-right books? help students schedule their reading and meeting time? deal with kids who don't do the reading? get kids to pay more attention to literary style and structure? help special education and ELL students to participate actively in book clubs? get kids to expand their repertoire of reading strategies? make sure groups are on-task when I'm not looking over their shoulder? introduce writing tools (including role sheets) that support student discussion?. help shy or dominating members get the right amount of "airtime?" give grades for book clubs without ruining the fun? use scientific research to justify the classroom time I spend on literature circles? Each mini-lesson spells out everything from the time and materials needed to word-by-word instructions for students. The authors even warn "what could go wrong," helping teachers to avoid predictable management problems. With abundant student examples, reproducible forms, photographs of kids in action, and recommended reading lists, Mini-lessons for Literature Circles helps you deepen student book discussions, create lifelong readers, and build a respectful classroom community.

Smokey Daniels supports this kind of well-planned and organized teaching nationwide, and he gets these two questions most often: Where do I find the time? What are some simple steps I can try with my kids? The Curious Classroom answers these questions. Its ladder of 10 inquiry structures gradually leads from briefly modeling your own curiosity to a unit driven by kids' questions." --Back cover.

"Upstanders is about helping young people question the world, build knowledge, become skilled researchers, and communicate thoughtfully-in the service of humanity, not just themselves." -Harvey "Smokey" Daniels and Sara Ahmed How can we meet today's elevated academic goals and engage middle school kids-but not simply replicate our competitive, winner-take-all society? How can our students achieve an even higher standard-demonstrating the capacity and the commitment to bend the world toward justice? In a word, inquiry. Welcome to the classroom of Sara Ahmed. With Smokey Daniels as your guide you'll see exactly how Sara uses inquiry to turn required curricular topics into questions so fascinating that young adolescents can't resist investigating them. Units so engaging that they provide all the complexity the standards could ever expect, while helping students grow from bystanders to Upstanders. Smokey and Sara describe precisely how to create, manage, and sustain a classroom built around choice, small-group collaboration, and critical thinking. You'll be inspired by what Sara's students accomplish, but you'll also come away from Upstanders with a can-do plan for teaching your own classes thanks to: a developmental look at what makes middle school kids special, challenging, and fun specific lessons that develop collaboration, self-awareness, and compassion a toolbox filled with teaching strategies, structures, tools, and handouts "Point-Outs" from Smokey that highlight key teaching moves "Game-Time Decisions" from Sara that reveal in-the-moment instructional choices narratives that document the incredible work that inquiry allows kids to do ambitious, engaging, and important units on commonly taught middle school themes. What kind of classroom do we want for our middle schoolers? How about one that develops the skills the standards demand and prepares kids to take action in the world right now? We can do it-if we help kids become Upstanders.

"Working effectively with the standards requires the critical understanding that the teacher-not the standard or the program-is the most important variable affecting adolescents' achievement." -Gretchen Owocki The Common Core Reading Book, 6-8 makes the reading goals of the standards doable for teachers in every content area. It also keeps the focus on instruction that's meaningful to adolescents and that supports deep engagement with literacy and your subject-area content. "I wanted to honor the intent of the standards," writes author Gretchen Owocki, "and at the same time respect the fact that students are eleven, twelve, and thirteen years old only once in their lives." Gretchen has matched sensible, step-by-step teaching strategies to the 10 reading anchor standards, giving you instructional choices that you can match to your students' needs, your goals for their development as readers, and your content-area's key texts. Whether you are a skilled teacher of reading or new to it, Gretchen pays special attention to the needs of literacy teachers and subject-area teachers alike with tools you'll use every day: a precise description of what each standard asks from adolescents instructional decision trees that simplify lesson planning clearly presented instructional strategies that release responsibility to students "students who..."suggestions for tailoring support to meet kids' individual needs. For close reading, citing textual evidence, evaluating arguments, analyzing visual media, or anything the Common Core reading standards ask for, rely on The Common Core Reading Book, 6-8. You'll find a framework sturdy enough to teach with, flexible enough to plan from, and so respectful of you and your students that it will soon become core to your teaching.
