Description:

A concise, easy-to read, twenty-nine page booklet providing insights about reading and the reader and what to look for when selecting a book for teaching reading.

The first part of the book Knowing About Reading considers the beliefs and understandings about how teachers can effectively help their students become life-long readers and writers.

The section Knowing the Reader presents the attitudes, understandings, and behavior of readers at the emergent, early, and independent stages of reading. The section Knowing the Books delves into supports and challenges citing some sample books at various reading levels.

In the section Presenting the Book the approaches of Reading to, Shared Reading, Guided Reading, and Independent Reading are explored. Encouraging Responses looks at the teachers role in helping readers respond to books and how to provide time and space for children to make their responses. Knowing What’s Happening has to do with the ways teachers can observe, evaluate, and discover what learning is taking place and how it is occurring throughout the day with the readers and writers in her classroom, and being an active, sharing member in that learning community.

Author Bio:

Margaret Mooney’s teaching, writing, and publishing career began in New Zealand.

For the past six years she has been dividing her time between New Zealand and the United States. Margaret encourages teachers to view all children as worthy, emphasizing education as a process of enhancement

and not one of compensation. She promotes guided reading as an instructional approach in which children practice, apply, and extend skills and strategies in order to understand text on the first reading. In addition to

Developing Life-long Readers, Margaret Mooney has also written Reading To, With, and By Children,

Text Forms and Features: A Resource for Intentional Teaching, The Books for Young Learners Teacher Resource, and A Book is a Present. In 1998, Queen Elizabeth II appointed Margaret as an officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit for her services to education, particularly the teaching of reading.
