In the real world, as learners among learners, literacy professionals use their experiences and voices for advocacy to help prepare students for success in their lives and careers.

Although it can seem a daunting task to individualize learning for all students, this book provides specific "how-to" techniques to make it happen, equipping you with the tools you need to differentiate instruction for all students: general education, gifted and talented, challenged, or English Language Learners (ELL). Addressing the reader with an engaging personalized tone, expert Dr. Shellie Hipsky demystifies the process of differentiated instruction as you tour elementary school classrooms with diverse populations and observe research-based strategies that transform theory into practical differentiated instructional techniques for literacy and language arts skills. You will gain valuable insights from seasoned elementary teachers through real life concrete examples, find advice for implementing strategies in literacy-based classrooms, learn how to create an effective learning environment, and utilize appropriate instructional techniques based on students' abilities, learning profiles, and interests. Additionally, you will explore strategies to differentiate in the reading areas of emerging literacy skills, vocabulary, comprehension, and fluency as well as writing, speaking, listening, and content area reading. Every chapter in the book includes specific illuminating classroom examples, questions for reflecting on the reading, active engagement ideas for further exploration of the topic, and conclusions. Strategies to simplify documentation, including the use of the Literacy and Language Arts Learning Skills Check Sheet, Differentiated Choice Chart, and a Portfolio Record Sheet, provide ways to organize important student information. A unique journal kept by an elementary teacher, whose classroom is visited in the text, rounds out the book as it demonstrates a year's worth of successful implementation of differentiation assessment and instruction. Differentiated Literacy and Language Arts Strategies for the Elementary Classroom focuses on the needs of pre-service teachers and yet it has ample strategies to positively impact the classrooms of current teachers.

"Early comprehension is difficult to measure in prereaders. The topic is therefore often overlooked in research, tools, and interventions. This title serves as a remedy by presenting theoretical models of prereader comprehension as well as skill-boosting approaches to building strong foundations for future reading comprehension. Various methods include using play, academic talk, digital texts, and informational texts to promote emergent language comprehension and using vocabulary intervention to build listening comprehension. Contributors address special subpopulations and offer guidance on working with included and multilingual children. The text also addresses the role of parents, teachers, and executive functioning in prereader comprehension as well as assessment methods (existing and desired), challenges, and opportunities. Some chapters translate knowledge for the benefit of parents and practitioners. Others aim to fill gaps in current thinking, practices, and research"--

" Rebecca S. Anderson University of Memphis "" Two strengths are most apparent: There is a wealth of information which shows the disposition (attitudes and beliefs) of an effective teacher and it provides the rationale for the development of such dispositions if one intends to teach. The second strength is the depth and breath of information that the text provides on the teaching of writing. This text provides valuable support and will be an excellent resource for preservice teachers."
