Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

CORE READY LESSON SETS:

3-5 Books:

“[This is an] innovative text that effectively presents reading and writing as what they truly are: vital tools that our students need in order to live successful lives. It calls upon students to become active lifelong learners and challenges them to extend their reading and writing abilities. Its lessons give students the “hands on approach” that is needed to motivate them to become effective analysts and authors…. Most importantly, all literacy skills taught in this text are presented in the same way that our students will see them in their adult lives. This book will bring life into your reading and writing workshops. This is the text that all effective teachers have been asking and waiting for.”

“I would strongly recommend it to colleagues and my administration because I feel it would be a resource series that would ultimately improve the way I teach literacy. I haven’t felt that way about a PD book since grad school.”
