Abstract:

Based on her work over the last decade with more than 100 schools and visits to more than 5000 classrooms, Barbara Taylor shares her School Change in Reading (SCR) reform model in Catching Schools. At the heart of the reform model is the belief that student learning improves when teachers are supported with research-based, effective reading instruction and are given a way to work alongside one another to hone their teaching abilities. The end result: a collaborative school community, motivated teachers, and students who are successful, engaged readers. Taylor's action points to schoolwide reading improvement include: research-proven practices for teaching reading; a model to put these practices into action for schoolwide reform in reading; assessment practices to inform teaching; collaborative meeting strategies and professional learning activities, including 100+ reproducibles for teachers and administrators. --Publisher's description.
