The Literacy Cookbook is a valuable resource—for veteran and novice teachers of ANY discipline. The fundamentals of literacy and the instruction of literacy belong in every classroom. What I like most is the readability of the book—and the humor, something we all need as teachers. Sarah has been a valuable resource as a monthly literacy consultant at my school—on the days she is not consulting, I use The Literacy Cookbook as a tool to guide discussions I have with English teachers—it is our go to book for the ELA department. But, it doesn’t end with English teachers, I have shared this book with computer arts teachers (using the quadrant analysis strategy), history teachers (research unit and close reading activities, and foreign language teachers, teaching robust vocabulary). This book is a must have for every classroom teacher. racy Cookbook is a valuable resource.
