What the reviewers are saying…
“I found [this book] to be informative and helpful, and I appreciate the challenge it presents to me to implement additional strategies as I work with adolescent literacy.”
Professor Roxanne Reedyk, Sheboygan Area School District and Lakeland College
“I learned many new strategies and felt, after reading [the book], that I had attended a highly motivational literacy workshop. After excellent workshops I always come home with many new strategies and ‘raring’ to get into the classroom to put those strategies into practice. This is exactly how I feel after reading this highly professional book.”
Kathleen M. Lennox, Mattacheese Middle School, Yarmouth, MA
