Providing a practical guide to strategic management in the field of special educational needs, this text gives the reader a framework for raising achievement throughout the school. By focusing on how to manage SEN strategically, rather than on planning for individual children, it shows how you can make it part of the overall school improvement process. The text also provides tools that SENCOs, headteachers and governors can use to analyze data, set objectives, measure and evaluate outcomes for SEN just as they do for other areas of the curriculum. Included are sections on: school self-evaluation; school development plans; the evidence base for different forms of provision; developing staff; and how to minimize bureaucracy. Helpful for OFSTED planning and securing best value, "Special Educational Needs and School Improvement" also enables schools to target limited resources where they should have most impact on promoting inclusion and raising attainment for all.

While most children learn to read fairly well, there remain many young Americans whose futures are imperiled because they do not read well enough to meet the demands of our competitive, technology-driven society. This book explores the problem within the context of social, historical, cultural, and biological factors. Recommendations address the identification of groups of children at risk, effective instruction for the preschool and early grades, effective approaches to dialects and bilingualism, the importance of these findings for the professional development of teachers, and gaps that remain in our understanding of how children learn to read. Implications for parents, teachers, schools, communities, the media, and government at all levels are discussed. The book examines the epidemiology of reading problems and introduces the concepts used by experts in the field. In a clear and readable narrative, word identification, comprehension, and other processes in normal reading development are discussed. Against the background of normal progress, Preventing Reading Difficulties in Young Children examines factors that put children at risk of poor reading. It explores in detail how literacy can be fostered from birth through kindergarten and the primary grades, including evaluation of philosophies, systems, and materials commonly used to teach reading.

Primary-grade teachers face an important challenge: teaching children how to read while enabling them to build good habits so they fall in love with reading. Many teachers find the independent reading workshop to be the component of reading instruction that meets this challenge because it makes it possible to teach the reading skills and strategies children need and guides them toward independence, intention, and joy as readers. In Growing Readers, Kathy Collins helps teachers plan for independent reading workshops in their own classrooms. She describes the structure of the independent reading workshop and other components of a balanced literacy program that work together to ensure young students grow into strong, well-rounded readers. Kathy outlines a sequence of possible units of study for a yearlong curriculum. Chapters are devoted to the individual units of study and include a sample curriculum as well as examples of mini-lessons and reading conferences. There are also four “Getting Ready” sections that suggest some behind-the-scenes work teachers can do to prepare for the units. Topics explored in these units include: print and comprehension strategies; reading in genres such as poetry and nonfiction; connecting in-school reading and out-of-school reading; developing the strategies and habits of lifelong readers. A series of planning sheets and management tips are presented throughout to help ensure smooth implementation. We want our students to learn to read, and we want them to love to read. To do this we need to lay a foundation on which children build rich and purposeful reading lives that extend beyond the school day. The ideas found in Growing Readers create the kind of primary classrooms where that happens.

Are you overwhelmed by the amount of paperwork that SEN generates in your school? Would you like to spend more time actually improving the quality of teaching and learning for pupils with SEN or disabilities? If so, this is an essential book for you. Government are asking schools to identify fewer children with SEN and place less reliance on Individual Education Plans - but at the same time ensure that children get the help they need. This and the new Ofsted framework challenge schools to find new ways of enabling all children to make progress – those with ‘true’ SEN, and those who may just be lower-achieving or needing help with behaviour problems. Fully revised and updated, the new edition of this best-selling, practical text contains helpful and achievable strategies to meet these policy challenges. It will provide support for school leaders, SENCOs and anyone undertaking the national SENCO award. Through school case studies, Beating Bureaucracy in Special Educational Needs shows how to increase pupil progress by using existing systems for class and subject teacher target-setting, tracking and planning. It lists the intervention programmes that really work and describes successful partnership with parents. A toolkit of ready-to-use pro-formas, also available online, includes: a model policy to give to Ofsted curriculum planning formats and provision maps strategy sheets for all the main types of SEN proformas to help you plan, monitor and evaluate your provision. The book shows how to put responsibility for supporting children with most types of additional need firmly back where it belongs – with class and subject teachers. It will help you – in the words of one SENCO – ‘get your life back’.
