Product Description


""Teaching with Intentio"n is recommended for both teachers and teacher educators who want to work through the age-old theory-versus-practice struggle. Indeed, if Miller's story and classroom experiences are read and reflected on with the purpose of finding one's own solution to this ongoing dilemma, true teaching with intention might result." - "Education Review"

Debbie Miler has such an amazing outlook on teaching! My reading program was completely changed because of her books. It is a must for all teachers!

I am a BIG Debbie Miller fan. I have read Reading for Meaning over and over from cover to cover and was able to use it in the classroom. I didn't find that there were many practical ideas-there was more belief than action. I was so looking forward to her next book packing the same punch but it just didn't do that for me. Sorry Debbie.

I ordered this book because the primary teachers at our school decided we needed to be more consistent with teaching vocabulary. We started a book club and decided to read Reading With Meaning. As I was ordering that book I saw this book and ordered it. I've been teaching for 20 years and this book got me to thinking about a different way to get my kids excited about thinking of our classroom as being part of a community. I love the ideas for using manners and modeling the type of behavior and thinking I want to see in our classroom.
Can't wait to try it!

HASH(0xa2fcc720) out of 5 stars Aligning beliefs with practice March 3 2009
By Lori Jackson - Published on
Format: Paperback
With her gentle, loving tone, Miller reminds us of what really counts n the classroom with a discussion of the importance of identifying core beliefs about literacy education. She examines her own reflective process and discusses the importance of the role of reflecting on classroom practice and planning with the goal of alignment. Practicing, as always, her own beliefs, the remainder of the book is organized around Miller's own key beliefs with each chapter illustrating those beliefs through powerful classroom stories. As a coach, I see so much potential in the this book--not just for new teachers, but as part of a discussion that allows us to begin with articulating who we are and what we believe in. Well done, Debbie, well done.

HASH(0xa2fcc774) out of 5 stars Good for new teachers Dec 27 2008
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
I bought this book because I loved her other book. I was disappointed. This book is geared to new teachers. As a teacher of 13 years it didn't have any new that I haven't heard before in seminars or other books. If you know someone who is a first year teacher, it's perfect for them. Otherwise, save your money.

HASH(0xa2fccabc) out of 5 stars Best Book Ever! Sept. 11 2011
By Lisakay - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book has tremendous ideas that you could put to use right in the classroom immediately. I am a third grade teacher and I can use these ideas with just a little adaptation here and there. This book has lessons you could start with day 1. It is also so easy to read. Not a book that you dread picking up, but one that you can't put down. I am never getting rid of my copy. I will hold on to it for my entire teaching career.

HASH(0xa2fcca38) out of 5 stars What is your teaching philosophy? June 30 2009
By A. Kenely - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book will get you thinking about your teaching philosophy. In these days of high stakes tests and standards being pushed and pushed I think we as educators have gotten lost in all the chaos of state and federal regulations. I think this is a great read for a new teacher as well as a veteran teacher. I have yet to finish it all but from what I have read, I am encouraged by Mrs. Miller to redefine my philosophy of teaching and to keep a journal this year to find out new things about how I teach and what I value the most. Happy Reading!
