I love how Serafini puts teachers at the center and inspires you to trust what you know, to do your best practice, and get kids MORE involved in their assessments.
I already have student led conferences in the Fall and Spring, already used Portfolios, and already had kids doing weekly reflections, now all of those things will improve- plus I learned some other really helpful ways to "collect information" about the group of readers I have...It is summer, I've had the time to read and mull it over, and I'm hoping what I've learned in this text rolls into my practice without too much stress.
