Description: Long-awaited by middle school professionals, Reading and Responding in the Middle Grades: Approaches for All Classrooms, uniquely encompasses learning to read (comprehension), reading to learn (across the curriculum), and adolescent literature and response. Written by outstanding literacy experts Lee Galda and Michael Graves, this text is a must-have for any future middle-grade teacher due to its strong focus on helping all students, across the spectrum of content areas and reading proficiencies, hone their reading abilities, learn from what they read, and become increasingly motivated to read and competent in responding to the sophisticated texts they encounter in the middle grades and beyond. Glowing Reviews! ldquo;I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. My knowledge base was definitely broadened and I found much merit and much to commend. In fact, I made notes in the margins filled with such statements as ldquo;easy to read,rdquo; ldquo;terrific idea,rdquo; and ldquo;important insight.rdquo; shy;--Maria Ceprano, Buffalo State College ldquo;The inclusion of ELL issues in the deliberations about teaching are quite useful and appropriate. This book does an excellent job describing ELL studentsrsquo; instructional needs and offering alternative or modified instructional approaches.rdquo; --Kurtis S. Meredith-University of Northern Iowa. [AUTHOR PHOTOS] Lee Galda is Professor of Childrenrsquo;s and Adolescent Literature at the University of Minnesota.
