About the Author

Mary Ehrenworth is coauthor of Pathways to the Common Core (with Lucy Calkins and Christopher Lehman). She is Deputy Director of Middle Schools at the Teachers College Reading and Writing Project, Columbia University. She studied history and literature at Harvard and then curriculum theory and adolescent literacy at Columbia, where she received her doctorate - and then has been lucky to work with three subjects she loves - books, children, and teachers. In addition to Pathways, Mary has authored and co-authored numerous books, including: The Power of Grammar; Teaching Reading Through Fantasy Novels; Constructing Curriculum and Tackling Complex Texts from Units of Study in Reading; and Looking to Write: Teaching Writing Through the Visual Arts. Mary is also offering support to educators with the Common Core Standards through an online course entitled Harnessing the Common Core Standards to Achieve Higher Levels of Reading and Writing in Your Classroom and School offered through our new Digital Campus.

Lucy Calkins is the author of the popular firsthand classroom materials Units of Study for Teaching Writing series and the Units of Study for Teaching Reading, Grades 3-5 series. Most recently, Lucy has published a common core workshop curriculum, Units of Study in Opinion, Information, and Narrative Writing, Grades K - 5. In addition, Lucy is the author or coauthor of numerous foundational professional texts with Heinemann, including Pathways to the Common Core;The Art of Teaching Writing; and One to One. She is also the author of The Art of Teaching Reading. She is the Founding Director of the Teachers College Reading and Writing Project at Columbia University's Teachers College. For more than twenty-five years, the Project has been both a think tank - developing state of the art teaching methods - and a provider of professional development. In these capacities, the Project has supported hundreds of thousands of educators. As the leader of this world renowned organization, Lucy works closely with policy-makers, superintendents, district leaders and school principals to instigate and sustain school-wide and system-wide educational reforms. But above all, Lucy works closely with teachers and with their classrooms full of wise and wonderful children. Lucy is also the Richard Robinson Professor of Children's Literature at Teachers College, where she leads the Literacy Specialist program. Lucy and her husband John are the parents of two sons, Miles and Evan.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The information in this book does not just apply to fantasy novels but to teaching reading and especially fiction in middle school. Quick read with good information and if a teacher is teaching fantasy there certainly is a lot of detail about that. The fantasy part can be ignored so to get the big ideas that are easily accessible for teaching reading in general

Great resource to teach fantasy genre. It made my unit tops. The lessons made the unit more purposeful and meaningful to my students. I would give it more than 5 stars if I could. Buy it! Your students will benefit.
