Synopsis

Every teacher wants and expects his or her students to be reading increasingly complex texts, yet sometimes the gap between our expectations and our students' abilities seems wide and deep. It's tempting to look at that gap and step in to fill it for them. How can teachers ensure that students are fully entering, absorbing, and experiencing texts? How can we make sure they're making complex meaning "independently and proficiently," as the Common Core State Standards require? Readers Front and Centre answers these questions by framing instruction that starts with the student.

You'll learn how to do the following: Research and listen to your students so your teaching can be more targeted Notice and name your students' thinking so they can "see" what complex thinking looks and sounds like Set your students up to be problem solvers Prepare your students to do increasingly complex thinking in increasingly complex texts Filled with examples of one-on-one conferences, small groups, and whole-class scenarios, this essential book provides an accessible and inspiring model of how and why we need to put students at the front and centre of our teaching.
