Where Do I Go from Here?: Meeting the Unique Educational Needs of Migrant Students, Vocke, Karen S. , (2007)

"'Where Do I Go From Here?' by Karen Vocke is a practical and well written book that will appeal to teachers, administrators, and other community members where migrant workers live and these workers' children go to school. The book contains valuable resources, including lesson plans and other materials that could be used by teachers of other ESL children, as well as by teachers whose students are not learners of English. The book helps the reader become aware that educational opportunity and equality do not exist as static entities, but rather are created by whole communities, especially those who choose to make the invisible more visible." --Prolepsis

Getting to "Got It!": Helping Struggling Students Learn How to Learn, Garner, Betty K. , (2007)

"In this book, Betty K. Garner focuses on why students struggle and what teachers can do to help them become self-directed learners. Difficulty reading, remembering, paying attention, or following directions are not the reasons students fail but symptoms of the true problem: underdeveloped cognitive structures—the mental processes necessary to connect new information with prior knowledge; organize information into patterns and relationships; formulate rules that make information processing automatic, fast, and predictable; and abstract generalizable principles that allow them to transfer and apply learning."

Storytime: Young Children's Literary Understanding in the Classroom, Sipe, Lawrence R. , (2008)

"Drawing on his own extensive research in urban classrooms, Lawrence Sipe presents a comprehensive, grounded theoretical model of children's understanding of picture storybooks - the first to focus specifically on young children. Sipe suggests that children respond in five different ways during picture storybook readalounds; that these responses reveal that children are engaged in five different types of literary meaning-making; and that these five types of meaning-making are instantiations of five foundational aspects of literary understanding."

Challenging Homophobia: Teaching About Sexual Diversity, van Dijk, Lutz, and van Driel Barry , (2007)

And it offers guidance for challenging the social ill of homophobia, in the form of case studies, tested lesson plans and advice on inspiring resources."

Unleashing the Unpopular: Talking About Sexual Orientation and Gender Diversity in Education, Killoran, Isabel, and Jim?ez Karleen Pendleton , (2007)

"This new publication is a unique teacher education resource that strives to improve understanding of issues related to sexual orientation, gender diversity, and education, and how they affect students, teachers, schools, and the community. Personal narratives offer insight into experiences of LGBT students and teachers in schools. These narratives and essays are offered as an invitation to make room for the questions and discussion that will hopefully lead to more equitable communities. The authors discuss barriers to successfully supporting LGBT students, teachers, and parents; and explore the reasons behind action or inaction, the effects of not having supportive policy around LGBT issues, and possible solutions to the concerns. Educators share their successes and failures in their attempts to address gender diversity and sexual orientation in the classroom and/or school community. They provide strategies for introducing, supporting, and engaging students in dialogue, advocacy, and arts-based activities." --Association for Childhood Education International
