The Essence of Effective and Engaging Literacy Learning K-2: What We Really Know!

Multiple Paths to Literacy K–2
Proven High-Yield Strategies to Scaffold Engaging Literacy Learning across the Curriculum

Inquiry, Play, Art, Technology, and Self-Regulation through Intentional Teaching

Multiple Paths to Literacy K-2 (2016), Miriam’s latest book, equips teachers of young children with practical high-yield strategies, assessment tools, and motivating activities, all steeped in strong research and easily applicable in all kinds of learning environments. Included are many authentic writing samples, photos, mini-lessons and engaging activities and teacher stories that truly enliven the instructional methods. Sought-after author and speaker Miriam P. Trehearne demonstrates how to scaffold play, self-regulation, art, inquiry, technology and literacy learning effectively while linking assessment to instruction.

There are multiple paths to literacy learning. That being said, we do know that there are some proven high-yield strategies that do make a huge difference no matter the path taken. The teachers celebrated in this research-based book demonstrate many of these high-yield strategies and instructional approaches by providing hundreds of practical ideas that teachers can put to use in their classrooms tomorrow.  Real-life examples come to life in the many photos, student writing samples, and student, teacher, and parent reflections and stories. Enjoy the varied voices!

Fourteen research-based yet practical chapters provide the essence of what we know about excellent early literacy teaching and learning. And we know a lot! The bottom line is that ‘new’ or ‘different’ is not necessarily better. The works of such notables as John Hattie, Michael Fullan and others promote improving teaching by building on success, on what is working, rather than looking to implement yet ANOTHER innovation. This practical professional resource by Miriam P. Trehearne is dedicated to all teachers who are successfully making it work their way and who have the strength to avoid yet another bandwagon!
