Developing Habits of Noticing in Literacy and Language Classrooms - Research and Practice across Professional Cultures... Developing Habits of Noticing in Literacy and Language Classrooms - Research and Practice across Professional Cultures (Paperback)
Alyson Simpson, Francesca Pomerantz, Douglas Kaufman, Sue Ellis
R943 Discovery Miles 9 430 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Noticing is an essential aspect of professional expertise in teaching - a skill that draws on deep professional knowledge in ways that affect how teachers are aware of, respond to and meet the needs of their students. Being a 'noticing teacher' in the language and literacy classroom can make a real difference to students' progress as readers and writers, to their literacy attainment and to their engagement with learning. This international, research-informed book is unique in its focus on literacy and language. The authors explore models and methods to embed both noticing and the development of teacher agency and grounded knowledge into teacher education programs and school practices. To further the professional knowledge and agency of 'noticing teachers', the authors argue that research, policy and the professional community need to understand how noticing skills can be woven into the policy and practice contexts of the literacy teacher's work. Developing Habits of Noticing in Literacy and Language Classrooms: Research and Practice across Professional Cultures is designed to help teachers, researchers and school leaders think in new ways about how 'noticing' operates in the context of the literacy classroom and how it can be supported. Each chapter provides a valuable insight into how teachers learn from their students, in the course of teaching activities, to be responsive, analytical and inspirational.

Investigating Subjectivity - Research on Lived Experience (Paperback): Carolyn Sue Ellis, Michael G Flaherty Investigating Subjectivity - Research on Lived Experience (Paperback)

Much has been missed by social researchers in their attempt to understand the human experience as a series of rational, cognitive choices. What comes under the rubric of "lived experience" fits no researcher's model other than, in the words of one of the volume's contributors, "one damned thing after another." Human subjectivity in lived experience, both that of the subject and of the researcher, is the topic of Investigating Subjectivity, an important corrective to the cool, disdainful stance of most previous social research. The dozen contributors examine various aspects of subjectivity--the emotions, the gendered nature of experiences, the body-mind relationship, perceptions of time, place and setting, understanding of the self--and how these elements provide a fuller understanding of the human condition. Incorporating subjectivity into research requires a new set of methods--systematic introspection, self-ethnography, staged readings, poetry, stories--many of which are demonstrated in the book. It also requires a focus on mundane (minor ailments, media images, hobbies) and extraordinary elements (exotic trips, earthquakes, abortion experience), which make up the bulk of lived experience and how people react to these life events. Investigating Subjectivity stands out from any others in the field because the emphasis is on research rather than theory or conceptualization. This outstanding volume is quality reading for academicians, undergraduate and graduate students in sociology, cultural studies, qualitative methods, and communication, especially those interested in emotions, narration, textual analysis, and symbolic interaction. "This is an unusual and intriguing book consisting of eleven articles and the authors' excellent, well-written, and probing introduction. The book unflinchingly pursues 'subjectivity' as an important and legitimate object of scientific research. . . . The writers challenge the continuing dominance of eighteenth-century rationalism by challenging the contemporary social science model that 'transforms emotional experience into models of rational action.'" --Perspectives on Political Science "The authors suggest that the volume be judged by whether it provokes feelings in the readers that they have lived, or could live, the experiences described. This reviewer argues that the editors have succeeded in their goal. . . . this reviewer recommends the book to the rehabilitationist who is interested in either conducting research or the application of research to practice. . . . This is an appropriate tool for the rehabilitation professional." --Journal of Applied Rehabilitation Counseling "This volume demonstrates an exciting reinvigoration of interactionism as it collides with phenomenology, existential sociology, and poststructuralism." --Contemporary Sociology

Applied Linguistics and Primary School Teaching (Hardcover, New): Sue Ellis, Elspeth McCartney Applied Linguistics and Primary School Teaching (Hardcover, New)

Modern primary teachers must adapt literacy programmes and ensure efficient learning for all. They must also support children with language and literacy difficulties, children learning English as an additional language and possibly teach a modern foreign language. To do this effectively, they need to understand the applied linguistics research that underpins so many different areas of the language and literacy curriculum. This book illustrates the impact of applied linguistics on curriculum frameworks and pedagogy. It captures the range of applied linguistics knowledge that teachers need, and illustrates how this is framed and is used by policy makers, researchers, teacher educators and the other professions who work with teachers in schools. It considers how to effect professional development that works. It is essential reading for primary teachers but also for speech and language therapists, educational psychologists, learning support teachers and all those doing language or literacy research in the primary classroom.

Whole Part Phonics (Paperback): Myra Barrs, Helen Bromley, Henrietta Dombey, Sue Ellis, Clare Kelly, Margaret Moustafa Whole Part Phonics (Paperback)

Significant recent research in literacy learning casts serious doubt on the effectiveness of traditional phonics instruction. Researchers have discovered that traditional phonics, with its emphasis on letters, sounds, and words, ignores the complexity of children's natural learning processes, including children's inclination to focus first on the text, then on whole words, and then on their constituent parts. "Whole to Part Phonics" offers a concise, accessible introduction to this research and proven strategies for translating it into effective classroom practice.

The contributors to "Whole to Part Phonics" recognize that children need to understand letter-sound relationships in order to become independent and fluent readers. But, they argue, this knowledge is of little value unless children learn how to use it in context. Accordingly, the authors maintain that children's encounters with print lay the groundwork for effective phonics learning. By drawing on children's wider experience of reading and on their preferred modes of learning, whole-to-part phonics offers an exciting alternative - students focus on the construction of meaning rather than the decoding of text.

In Part I, Henrietta Dombey explains how phonics works in English and surveys the research evidence for whole-to-part phonics. Margaret Moustafa then offers advice on using whole-to-part phonics strategies in a rich, literature-based reading program. Olivia O'Sullivan of the Centre for Language in Primary Education (CLPE) surveys research that investigates the connection between developmental spelling and reading. In Part II, the staff of the CLPE offers a set of detailed, practical suggestions for promoting the knowledge children need to learn letter-sound relationships and use them effectively in both their reading and writing.
