Summary Every classroom teacher is aware of that one student who is in danger of falling behind their peers in achieving expected literacy levels. In this volume, teachers recount how they were able to change or turn around their students' performance in the classroom and, in doing so, reflect upon their own practices. The case studies in each chapter illustrate how the teachers implemented practical ideas and strategies and embraced students' interest in new technologies, encouraging students to actively take responsibility for their own learning. The teachers were able to rekindle an interest in literacy activities in the classroom. Here is a book that will inspire teachers to turn around their own teaching
