"I think this book would make an exceptional subject for an in-service workshop for all teachers of any school since the strategies can be applied at any grade level. I would enjoy participating or teaching a workshop of these ideas. The author seems to have created a knowledge base that is desperately needed in today's educational environment...especially in the...world of high-stakes testing, merit pay, and low-performing schools." -Sylvia Hoke, MacArthur Junior High School, AR "I find the organization of the book logical, moving from an overview of specific issues, to assessment, to remedies and application. The writing style is personable and clear. The anecdotes and practical applications are, of course, the "good stuff," and it is impossible to ever have enough of them." -Polly Bill, Brandywine School District, DE Take a look inside: * Provides step-by-step lessons, examples, and practice materials for each higher-level literacy teaching strategy. * Addresses the needs of struggling learners with examples of maximum scaffolding that is gradually reduced to help teachers instruct all students. * Presents systematic specific instruction from easiest to complex and provides a comprehensive program for teaching students how to respond to higher-level constructed response questions. * Aligns instruction with assessment of higher-level skills.
