In the midst of increasing curricular mandates, teachers find it challenging to maintain crucial decision-making freedoms within their literacy programs.  Deb Jensen and Jenny Tuten provide a clear road map for teachers who want to take ownership and respond to struggling readers' strengths and vulnerabilities.  Through six in-depth case studies of culturally, linguistically, and economically  diverse children from New York City schools, the authors help teachers learn to look closely at struggling readers in order to develop  literacy experiences respectful of each unique learner.  What a practical, invaluable guide for teachers!
