A Practical Guide to Rigorous Literacy Instruction
The question is a big one: how can we teach our students to read, read well, and read on their own? Reading Reconsidered is expert educators Doug Lemov, Colleen Driggs, and Erica Woolway’s practical, anxiety-free answer to the question. Grounded in advice from successful classrooms nationwide and with over 40 video clips of the expert educators at their helm, the book provides clear and actionable guidance to make all teachers reading teachers, one tool at a time. The book addresses the often anxiety-inducing world of Common Core, distilling from it four key ideas that help teach students to perform both on the test and in the world beyond it. By helping teachers to reconsider such essential topics as vocabulary, interactive reading, and student autonomy, Reading Reconsidered does more than just push teachers to log more ‘miles on the page’ — it gives them the tools they need to make those miles count.
