Praise for the CORE READY series:
“[T]his is a great way to teach ELA…. a group of teachers could use this to change their core reading program... I see this as a way to truly become a reader and writer for today’s world.”
-- Edward Karl Shultz, Midwestern State University
“This book is so inspiring! I hope many districts adopt your program! It will change the lives of many students for the better!”
-- Elizabeth Smith, Madison Elementary School (VA)
“Pam Allyn’s impressive book, Be Core Ready, provides practical, useful, and insightful advice on how to implement the Common Core State Standards. Her conversational tone, passion for literacy, and, above all else, her unwavering commitment to doing what is best for all learners will help educators build core strengths in every student. Multiple copies belong in every school’s professional development collection.”
-John Schumacher, Teacher-Librarian
"In this informative yet accessible book, Pam Allyn draws upon her extensive understanding of the Common Core State Standards and the changes they demand for literacy education to offer innovative strategies and implementation techniques that develop college and career readiness and inspire all students to become 'curators of ideas' and lifelong readers, writers, speakers, and listeners. I will definitely use the Core Ready Series in my ongoing work with teachers and city schools."
-Ernest Morrell, Teachers College, Columbia University
"An inspiring book; filled with thought-provoking insights into the Common Core standards. Pam alleviates “core anxiety " by providing innovative ways to fill any gaps that may exist in your current classroom practices. She takes a look at the everyday literacy skills utilized by a variety of professionals and weaves a link down to our youngest learners. Pam's explanations of the necessary "shifts" I need to make in my teaching are user- friendly and easy to implement. I love the Colleague Conversation starters designed to open dialogue, share ideas and reflect on personal literacy experiences. I can't wait to share this uplifting resource with all of my teacher friends!”
-Valerie Palacio, Grade 2 Teacher
"Let Pam Allyn help you conquer the Common Core by going to the core --the core of what readers do when truly engaged with books."
-Carol Jago, past president, National Council of Teachers of English and author of With Rigor for All: Meeting Common Core Standards for Reading Literature
"Help is here. As educators scramble to prepare themselves for the common core standards, Pam Allyn has produced what many will find to be an invaluable resource. Written in a clear, compelling and accessible manner, Allyn brings years of research on literacy and teaching to help educators respond to the higher standards created by the Common Core. By following the advice she offers and creatively applying the ideas presented, educators will find that we not only have no need to fear the Common Core but we can embrace it as a way to address the learning needs of our students."
-Pedro A. Noguera, Ph.D., Peter L. Agnew Professor of Education, Steinhardt School of Culture, Education and Development
