Editorial Reviews

Janet Hurt
"For years, we have struggled with teaching reading at the middle and high school levels. Dr. Taylor's book provided the guidance that we so desperately needed. Her book could not have been more timely or more helpful. The book provides us a pathway to accelerating our students' literacy skills and literacy collaboration to support our teachers. "
Doctor - Dale Moxley
"This is a must read for all school personnel interested in creating a literacy plan for their school that will work!! I have had the personal pleasure of working with Dr. Taylor to establish a K-12 literacy process in our school district. I have seen the process work first hand and experienced the power of the results. Dr. Taylor has captured the step-by-step process in her field book for all schools to follow for successful implementation.
