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.

Jennifer Serravallo is the best-selling author of the new Reading Strategies Book as well as other popular Heinemann titles, including Teaching Reading in Small Groups; Conferring with Readers (coauthored with Gravity Goldberg); and The Literacy Teacher's Playbook, Grades K - 2 and Grades 3 - 6. She is also the author of the Digital Campus Course Teaching Reading in Small Groups: Matching Methods to Purposes where you can watch dozens of videos of Jen teaching in real classrooms and engage with other educators in a self-guided course. 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. Before that, she was a New York City public school teacher 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 the award-winning Independent Reading Assessment for fiction (Scholastic, 2012) and nonfiction (Scholastic, 2013). Jen holds a BA from Vassar College and an MA from Teachers College, where she has also taught graduate and undergraduate classes on urban education reform and children's literature.

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!
