The Big Book of Literacy Tasks: 75 Balanced Literacy Activities Students Do (Not You)!
By Nancy Akhavan
Our readers and writers must "do the doing" if they are to succeed. Seventy-five tasks in beautiful full-color two-pagers ensure gradual release by moving more swiftly from the "I do" teacher phase to the "you do" student phase.
Backed by research and thoughtfully arranged to make day-to-day planning easier, this groundbreaking book provides:
Reading and writing tasks organized into three sections
Mini-lessons that are essential - whether you use a reading program, take a workshop approach, or are just transitioning into Balanced Literacy!
Colorful teaching charts that allow you to quickly grasp the high points of each lesson
A clear task structure for introducing and managing the stages as you move students toward independent practice
Mid-task "Watch Fors" and "Work Arounds" that show how to coach without risking helicopter teaching
Sample student work that offers valuable insights on how to use the tasks as formative assessments
