Overview

The new edition of 50 Literacy Strategies: Step by Step by Gail E. Tompkins is a conveniently organized resource for all elementary and middle school teachers, providing research-based and classroom-tested instructional strategies to develop literacy abilities. Everything you need to know to implement each activity effectively and quickly is included in a consistent, easy-to-understand format.

Each of the instructional strategies outlines:

· Grade Level: Whether the strategy is appropriate for k-2, 3-5 or 6-8

· Scaffolding English Learners: How the strategy is particularly appropriate, or how it can be adapted to better meet the needs of, English Learners

· Step by Step: As always, clearly outlined steps to implement the strategy

· Why and When to Use the Strategy: Sections to help you determine when each activity is most appropriate

· Authentic Student Samples: Artifacts from the classroom that model the responses you will receive from students

The instructional strategies are organized alphabetically and numbered for easy reference. Inside the cover is an index grouping strategies by instructional focus, providing another helpful guide to finding the strategy needed.

Meet the Author

Gail Tompkins I’m a teacher, first and foremost. I began my career as a first-grade teacher in Virginia in the 1970s. I remember one first grader who cried as the first day of school was ending. When I tried to comfort him, he sobbed accusingly, “I came to first grade to learn to read and write and you forgot to teach me.” The next day, I taught that child and his classmates to read and write! We made a small patterned book about one of the stuffed animals in the classroom. I wrote some of the words and the students supplied the others, and I duplicated copies of the book for each child. We practiced reading it until everyone memorized our little book. The children proudly took their books home to read to their parents. I’ve never forgotten that child’s comment and what it taught me: Teachers must understand their students and meet their expectations.

My first few years of teaching left me with more questions than answers, and I wanted to become a more effective teacher so I started taking graduate courses. In time I earned a master’s degree and then a doctorate in Reading/Language Arts, both from Virginia Tech. Through my graduate studies, I learned a lot of answers, but more importantly, I learned to keep on asking questions.

Then I began teaching at the university level. First I taught at Miami University in Ohio, then at the University of Oklahoma, and finally at California State University, Fresno. I’ve taught preservice teachers and practicing teachers working on master’s degrees, and I’ve directed doctoral dissertations. I’ve received awards for my teaching, including the Provost’s Award for Excellence in Teaching at California State University, Fresno, and I was inducted into the California Reading Association’s Reading Hall of Fame. Throughout the years, my students have taught me as much as I taught them. I’m grateful to all of them for what I’ve learned.

I’ve been writing college textbooks for more than 20 years, and I think of the books I write as teaching, too. I’ll be teaching you as you read this text. As I write a book, I try to anticipate the questions you might ask and provide that information. I also include students’ samples so you can see concepts that I’m explaining.
