Summary Journey with Tony Stead as he explores many amazing ways to make nonfiction reading and writing come alive in the classroom. This four-part video series takes you inside two classrooms at The Manhattan New School where Tony works with first-grade teacher Lauren Benjamin and third-grade teacher Lisa Elias Moynihan. Watch how literacy centers literally come alive in the classroom and see some of the original ways students respond to their nonfiction reading. Learn how to organize a nonfiction classroom library and to support children as they select appropriate texts. From learning about frogs, crows, and static electricity, to debating whether zoos should exist, you'll enjoy watching the whole-class mini-lessons that successfully integrate the content areas with language process. About the author: Tony Stead became a teacher because he wanted to make a difference in children's lives. And he is certainly doing that through his publications, teaching, and work with teachers all over the world. A native of Melbourne, Australia, Tony earned his master of education degree from the University of Melbourne and worked for fourteen years as a K-6 teacher in five different school settings in Melbourne. He believes that professional development should be "hands-on, relevant, reflective, engaging, empowering." He encourages teachers to "take off the teacher hat and replace it with that of the learner," and to celebrate success, no matter how small. Tony is the author of Reality checks, Is that a fact? and the videos Bridges to independence and Time for nonfiction.
