More About the Author

I am a teacher and I LOVE working with students. Currently, I work at Health Sciences High (www.hshsmc.org) and San Diego State University (www.sdsu.edu). I focus my work on improving students' literacy lives. My personal website, shared with my colleague and friend Nancy Frey, is www.fisherandfrey.com. I write to clarify my own thinking and to share what I have learned with teachers around the world. I hope the books that Nancy and I write are useful for teachers as they focus on the needs of their students literacy development.

This book is suggested for any teacher who may be working at a school in a district that is considered to be under program imporvoment. Your classroom will be transformed and it will spill into the rest of the classrooms. You school's performance is bound to turn around within the year. Great tool for staff development.

Worth a careful read. Authors apply what we know about learning to the language, content and literacy demands of today's classrooms.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Text for my Purposes at Work: ESOL January 13, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I needed more research on ESOL. This work on techniques and methods for ESOL students and our means to produce sustainable and meaningful talking points is sound. I already knew all of this, but when presenting trainings, this text presents the material well. No more turn and talk for ELs who are beginning! Ugh! Hate what 'all" teachers do for 'all' students 'all' the time.

When is differentiation really going to hit home? If you need a text to help you show, simply, a set of methods to deliver accountable talk to ELs and "all" students, I felt this was sound and targeted.
