About the Author

Gravity Goldberg is coauthor of the Heinemann title Conferring with Readers (2007). She is a full-time staff developer at the Teachers College Reading and Writing Project at Columbia University, where she consults with principals, coaches, and teachers in New York City and throughout the country. Gravity was a special educator and third-grade teacher in Boston and is currently a doctoral candidate at Teachers College, Columbia University, where she is also a part-time instructor in the preservice early childhood education department.

A literacy consultant, researcher, and author, Jennifer Serravallo is the best-selling author or coauthor of the Heinemann titles Teaching Reading in Small Groups and Conferring with Readers. Her latest book, The Literacy Teacher's Playbook, Grades K - 2 and Grades 3 - 6 helps teachers assess confidently and teach powerfully by sharing Jen's experience with assessment. Jen worked for eight years as a staff developer and national consultant at the Teachers College Reading and Writing Project at Columbia University. In this capacity, she helped urban, suburban, and rural schools implement exceptional literacy instruction through reading and writing workshops. While working toward her MA at Teachers College, she taught grades 3 - 5 in two Title I schools with large class sizes, high numbers of ELLs, and an enormous range of learners. These experiences galvanized her to write her Heinemann professional books as well as other professional resources for teachers, including: Independent Reading Assessment for fiction and nonfiction (Scholastic, 2013). Learn more about Jen and her work at www.jenniferserravallo.com, or connect with her at @jserravallo. In this video at The Teacher Channel, you can see how Jen's deep experiences with teaching, learning, and staff development help her to provide expert teacher-to-teacher feedback---even outside her usual content area. In her second video in a series at The Teacher Channel, Jen provides feedback on a third-grade reading lesson that introduces students to the strategy of finding the main idea in a text.

I teach classes for struggling and reluctant readers at a suburban high school. The program is geared for younger students, so I have had to make a few adjustments. It's modeled after Writer's Workshop. We've been at it for a week, and the kids are actually reading. I don't know if it's the conferencing, or the chance to sit in soft chairs, or what. I just know. It works!

Conferring with Readers has been an easy read so far. It's a great book for a discussion group and the practical information is easy to apply in the classroom. The writers are relatable and I'm enjoying a text that I can flip around and read at my leisure.

Format: Paperback
This book has some great information, but the editing errors are absolutely distracting! I'm finding myself now (I'm on Ch. 8) not "trusting" the way it's written ... so much so that I have to go back and reread to get the content. Ugh!
