After four years of working in instructional technology, I'm teaching English again, and so I'm beginning to revisit some of my favorite books about teaching (and, specifically, teaching English, reading, and writing). For those of you who are teachers—or parents or other adults helping children outside of school—here are some books to check out.
Another thing to check out? Our new Teaching Tidbits episodes! We launched this new series last week, with Sara's focus on own voices books.
I'd love to know: what books would you add to my list?
Penny Kittle's Write Beside Them: Risk, Voice, and Clarity in High School Writing and
Penny Kittle and Kelly Gallagher's 180 Days: Two Teachers and the Quest to Engage and Empower Adolescents
Jim Burke's Reading Reminders: Tools, Tips, and Techniques
Steven L. Layne's In Defense of Read-Aloud: Sustaining Best Practice
Ellin Oliver Keene and Susan Zimmerman's Mosaic of Thought: The Power of Comprehension Strategy Instruction, 2nd Edition
