Acerca de


Roseboro offers an invaluable section that details the essence of teaching as more than telling and on behalf of student and teacher assures us that test prep is a "no brainer". Having students "understand" what they are to be assessed on and in what well as supplying reasons for measurement boosts their self-confidence and likelihood of their success lets them know that you are their advocate - not there to do a "gotcha". Her use of color coding is a primary teaching tool and as a means of making room for "peer instruction"...Beautiful use of the personal stories to alert the new teacher to the essence of individuality regarding learning styles. With regard to "critical reading"...and conferencing...what a wonderful opportunity to have students compare their earliest work - prior to introduction to a particular concept or their most recent .or final work...discussing either orally or in writing (or both) their progress. Foremost, I love the idea of connecting personal writing to current events in their lives. In summation, Roseboro has created a practical guidebook for success as a neophyte teacher as well as a refreshing overview of personal practice as we monitor and adjust veteran approaches to "effective teaching". -- Marilyn Gross, Pennsylvania retired reading specialist, 30+years. accelerated, developmental, corrective, remedial K-12 & university levels As Head of Middle School at a small, private, independent school, I would happily recommend this book not only to my middle school faculty and colleagues but also to teachers of language arts at any level. The thoughtful analysis of language arts teaching that Roseboro provides would, no doubt, be of value to any teacher who values literacy and, more importantly, values literacy learners. Confident but not arrogant, witty but not cloying, informative but not preachy, Teaching Reading in Middle School: Common Core and More should take a prominent, accessible position on every language arts classroom's reference shelf. -- Rudolph Sharpe, Jr. Head of Middle School,Lancaster Country Day School, Lancaster, PA Anna is the colleague all teachers hope they have and hope to become, and she is the teacher we all want for our own children. Her book is grounded in an over-arching philosophy of the relevance of teaching individual students in the seamless circle of an English classroom how to be successful and joyful while acquiring the tools of the mind and applying acquired skills to understanding texts and for producing them. Her writing style is an on-going conversation of ideas, practical, detailed, focused, and tested ideas, and of how to teach students to acquire, cherish, utilize, and hunger for knowledge. She provides a treasure trove of resources, including those within the wider community, and fresh day-to-day activities. These activities and resources energize collaboration and personal successes within the matrix of core standards, system-wide mandates, and standardized tests. She challenges rookie as well as vintage teachers, whether we are careered in a middle school, high school, or university, to create a balance between the awe of teaching/learning and the hard work for both the students and teacher, and she nudges us to remember that the journey of learning for all of us is on-going and ever-growing. -- Nancy Genevieve Perkins, professor emerita of English, University of Illinois Springfield; Co-author, "Adult Literacy in Writing;" editor and poet Teaching is a messy, imprecise, fantastically exciting and spectacularly demanding job but in these pages, Anna doesn't shy away from any of this. She's blunt, funny, practical, ambitious, demanding, gentle and inspiring. She asks teachers to reflect, she shows teachers how to use best practices and she prods teachers working in a world of "standards, standards, standards" to remember that we are teaching real human beings in our classrooms. Real kids who laugh, get distracted, crave leadership but demand independence... sometimes all within the same hour. From building classroom libraries to grading, from recognizing the challenges of adolescents to validating the impact of whole-child learning on academic performance, this text offers a banquet table of idea, tools, stories and strategies which are sure to benefit new and veteran educators alike. American schools would be much better off if we had a photocopy machine that could replicate more Anna Roseboro's for our academic world. Alas, this text is the next best thing. -- Alan Sitomer, author, teacher With the landscape of education changing rapidly, we need sound wisdom to help guide emerging teachers who often struggle with multiple teaching assignments and little support. Presenting the art of successful teaching and learning as a journey, Roseboro opens her book by providing strategies to help teachers create a strong learning community. Her voice as the knowledgeable guide is realistic and practical, sharing successful instructional techniques with activities and standards-based lessons that can be adapted to any classroom. An invaluable resource for all English language arts teachers, Roseboro's book should be required reading for anyone who will be teaching middle school language arts. -- Joan Williams, professional development director, mentor for early career educators in California's beginning teacher support program (BTSA) since 2000 and former English department chair and classroom teacher
