              Readicide: How Schools Are Killing Reading and What You Can Do About It (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Gallagher, Kelly; Foreword by Allington, Richard

              Read-i-cide n: The systematic killing of the love of reading, often exacerbated by the inane, mind-numbing practices found in schools. Reading is dying in our schools. Educators are familiar with many of the factors that have contributed to the decline--poverty, second-language i...ssues, and the ever-expanding choices of electronic entertainment. In this provocative new book, Kelly Gallagher suggests, however, that it is time to recognize a new and significant contributor to the death of reading: our schools. In Readicide, Kelly argues that American schools are actively (though unwittingly) furthering the decline of reading. Specifically, he contends that the standard instructional practices used in most schools are killing reading by: - valuing the development of test-takers over the development of lifelong readers; - mandating breadth over depth in instruction; - requiring students to read difficult texts without proper instructional support; - insisting that students focus solely on academic texts; - drowning great books with sticky notes, double-entry journals, and marginalia; - ignoring the importance of developing recreational reading; and - losing sight of authentic instruction in the shadow of political pressures. Kelly doesn't settle for only identifying the problems. Readicide provides teachers, literacy coaches, and administrators with specific steps to reverse the downward spiral in reading--steps that will help prevent the loss of another generation of readers.

              In Code-Switching Lessons, we show you how to lay down the red pen and use successful strategies-contrastive analysis and code-switching-for teaching Standard English in linguistically diverse classrooms. -Rebecca Wheeler & Rachel Swords Our kids bring to school powerful linguist...ic know-how-the cadences, rhythms, and language patterns of their homes and communities. Code-Switching Lessons shows teachers how to build on students' existing knowledge (Community English) to add new knowledge (Academic English).Teacher educator Rebecca Wheeler and urban educator Rachel Swords show how to lead students in discovery learning of grammar. Through contrastive analysis students gain explicit awareness of the contrasts between informal and formal English. From there, Rebecca and Rachel show how to lead students to code-switch -to choose the language style to fit the setting-the time, place, audience, and communicative purpose. In this way, teachers learn to build on students' linguistic strengths and add Standard English to students' linguistic toolkits. Code-Switching Lessons components: - 9 grammar units that fit naturally into your writing block form the core of the lesson book. Each unit contains two to four lessons that lead students to explore informal and formal grammar patterns in search of generalizations, comparisons, and contrasts. Following a scientific method of grammar inquiry, lessons move students from defining and classifying the grammar patterns to practicing and applying the pattern in their own writing. - An accompanying CD-ROM provides video and print resources to support your teaching. This electronic resource also provides answers to frequently asked questions and an extensive list of vernacular English patterns often found in school writing. While showing teachers how to identify and successfully respond to the top 9 grammar patterns common among students who speak African American Vernacular English (AAVE), these code-switching strategies extend to stud
