Praise for Transformational Literacy
"Put Transformational Literacy at the top of your reading list. This book truly is about transforming, not just tweaking, practice in response to the Common Core State Standards. Perfect for study in professional learning communities, the book takes you inside schools and classrooms that provide ambitious, higher-order instruction for students from all backgrounds."
—NELL K. DUKE, Ed.D., professor of Literacy, Language, and Culture, University of Michigan
"Hopeful and helpful—Transformational Literacy is filled with work-worthy ideas that instill hope in readers by providing helpful vignettes, descriptive examples, text suggestions, and instructional shifts that will prepare young scholars for the 21st century. No classroom teacher, instructional coach or administrator should be without this book."
—CRIS TOVANI, Secondary English teacher and instructional coach, author, and international literacy consultant
"Transformational Literacy is the right book at the right time. It gives teachers and administrators the know-how to leverage the Common Core State Standards across the academic disciplines in a way that promotes deep school-wide literacy improvement. But this really isn’t a book about the Common Core; it is a book about how to foster our students’ natural curiosity by challenging them with worthy and rigorous tasks, and it is about how to turn our classrooms into places where there is a clear commitment to quality. A must read."
—KELLY GALLAGHER, Secondary English teacher and author of Write Like This: Teaching Real-World Writing Through Modeling and Mentor Texts
