Richard L. allington university of florida. Peter h. johnston university at albany – SUNY. What teachers know and understand about content and students shapes how judiciously they select from texts and other materials and how effectively they present material in class. Their skill in assessing their students' progress also depends upon how deeply they understand learning, and how well they can interpret students' discussions and written work.

Fourth-graders around the country face new, high-stakes standardized tests, drawing increased attention to the need for effective literacy instruction in the upper-elementary grades. This essential book goes beyond political catch-phrases to examine what actually works in the fourth-grade classroom. After reviewing current research on upper-elementary reading instruction, the book takes readers directly into the classrooms of six highly successful teachers. Like the previously published Learning to Read, which focused on the first grade, Reading to Learn offers a rare view of the techniques and strategies good teachers use to engage students, help them develop as thoughtful readers and writers, and bolster self-directed learning and literate conversation. Bringing to life the complexities of day-to-day work with diverse students, the book provides inspiration and practical ideas for any teacher in the upper-elementary grades.

Allington is always good. Many examples,of the exemplary 4 th Grade classrooms noted how teachers taught students how to analyze, and more importantly, to discuss books. They examined 6 teachers who teach 4 th Grade. They did case studies on each teacher which shows that excellent teachers are not a one-size-fits-all. Some great insights for 4th Grade teachers!

Found the book when researching for my master's degree, but as a fourth grade teacher I found it was very interesting and helpful. Anecdotal stories backed up by sound research, and described a variety of classrooms.

I'm a fourth grade teacher with only two years of experience. I found the book to be very helpful, especially the interview/observations. I was a little frustrated at the small class sizes in the model teacher's rooms, but the ideas and information were excellent. Be warned that the editing was done poorly. I would recommend it to 3rd through 5th grade teachers.
