*Teaching Reading: Effective Schools, Accomplished Teachers
This book tells the stories of a select group of schools and teachers--those who "Beat the Odds." In 1997 the CIERA consortium was awarded a Cooperative Agreement to implement a research center focused on issues of early (pre-K through grade 3) reading. Among the studies was what came to be called the CIERA Beat the Odds Study, which was the catalyst for the present volume. The Beat the Odds study was the first step in a five year study in which the editors studied the process by which low achieving schools built new reading programs that would, hopefully, lead to increased reading achievement. Divided into four sections, this book: *looks at large scale studies that have recently examined characteristics of effective schools and teachers; *provides case studies of five schools in which children are achieving at high levels in reading; *deals with case studies of effective teachers of reading; and *contains a summary of research on effective schools and teachers. A concluding chapter reflects on the chapters in the book and possible directions for further research on effective schools and teachers. This book will be useful for in-service elementary teachers interested in increasing their school's reading achievement.
