Temple to be Published in Indonesia

Professor of Education Charles Temple, who recently worked to help Liberian authors publish children’s books through Reading Liberia, will be published once more – this time in a language other than his mother tongue. Pearson Education will publish the 3rd Edition of Temple’s textbook “All Children Read: Teaching for Literacy in Diverse Classrooms,” in Indonesian (Bahasa Indonesia) through Prenada Media in Jakarta next year.  Temple co-authored the book with Donna Ogle, Alan Crawford and Penny Freppon.

The text, like its previous editions, continues to provide K-8 teachers with early literacy concepts, practices for developing reading and writing skills for all students regardless of reading level or ability through six central themes. The textbook emphasizes nurturing every child who steps through the classroom door- not just those who struggle with reading and writing or are learning English as a second language. Through each theme, Temple and his colleagues seek to prepare teachers to educate today’s students by applying strategy and theory in the classroom.

“The courses you take in literacy education should give you a timely preparation to teach,” says Temple and his co-authors in a note to readers featured in the book’s 2nd edition.   “They should also give you a deep understanding of how literacy works, so you can keep growing in your understanding of teaching after your initial preparation is behind you. We trust you will find in this book, and in your literacy classes and preparatory experiences, the background you need to become the teacher you aspire to be.”

Temple received his B.A. in English from the University of North Carolina, and his M.Ed. in curriculum studies and his Ph.D in reading education from the University of Virginia. He also studied at the University of Madrid, where he taught English part time, and taught at the University of Houston-Victoria. Temple is also the author and co-author of numerous books. In addition to his teaching duties at HWS, Temple co-founded and directs the Reading and Writing for Critical Thinking (RWCT) Project, in association with the International Reading Association.
