Resource Roundup From “Literacy Teaching in Turbulent Times”

By Wesley Ford
 | Aug 14, 2020

TurbulentTimesResources_w680Last week, we hosted a free event during which Stand for Children's Jonah Edelman facilitated a frank conversation with Ernest Morrell and Nell K. Duke about the challenges and opportunities of teaching during an unsettling and uncertain time. If you were able to join the live event, you know that Ernest and Nell offered not only powerful inspiration and uplifting motivation but also quite a few practical resources and book recommendations.

If you weren’t able to join us during the live event, don’t worry: The video is available on demand and for free through Facebook Live or on our YouTube channel.

Rather than have you go through and write down all the resources they shared, we did it for you!

Note that although I list a time stamp for when the resource was mentioned, it might not be entirely accurate depending on which of the recordings you watch. Each has been edited a little differently. But it should be close enough that you match the resource to what is being mentioned.

The resource

12:55: Nell mentions Catherine M. BohnAlysia D. Roehrig, and Michael Pressley’s study “The First Days of School in the Classrooms of Two More Effective and Four Less Effective Primary-Grades Teachers

14:24: Nell mentions two videos on her YouTube channel:

Small-Group Literacy Instruction at a Distance and Word Work at a Distance.

25:23: Ernest mentions Ibram X. Kendi’s Stamped From the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America and Jason Reynolds and Ibram X. Kendi’s Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You: A Remix of the National Book Award-winning Stamped From the Beginning 

37:31: Nell mentions her study from January 2000: For the Rich It's Richer: Print Experiences and Environments Offered to Children in Very Low- and Very High-Socioeconomic Status First-Grade Classrooms

46:45: Jonah recommends Ibram X. Kendi’s How to Be an Antiracist
