Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This book is a 'must read' for educators who seek to lift the level of literacy instruction in classrooms districtwide. The lens through which we examine literacy instruction is brought into sharp focus, and a clear picture of best practice by grade level is crafted. The descriptions of grade-specific teaching behaviors are explicit and rooted in a solid research base. Moreover, they are made visible and replicable through a plethora of classroom examples. Block and Mangieri have given us a powerful tool for scaffolding teacher change."--Elizabeth Asbury, EdD, Supervisor of Instruction, Medford Township (New Jersey) Public Schools

"Block and Mangieri provide clear, research-based descriptions of exemplary teachers and, more importantly, paint vivid pictures of what they look like in action. Exemplary Literacy Teachers, Second Edition, should be in the professional library of every classroom teacher, literacy coach, administrator, and university instructor."--James F. Baumann, PhD, Wyoming Excellence Chair of Literacy Education, University of Wyoming
   
"Exemplary literacy teachers are highly skilled at matching their teaching styles to the needs of their students. Both veteran and beginning teachers can learn from their successes and move toward more effective instruction with this book. The second edition features updated examples, teaching methods, resources, and strategies. The suggestions are practical and proven; the authors have based their work on decades of research and observation of effective teaching. Reading this book will help you make immediate improvements in your teaching of reading!"--Drew Tuck, fourth-grade teacher, Keshequa Elementary School, Dalton, New York
