One of my favorite parts of this book is the addition of the effect size of each strategy, which is listed in the margins. When looking at how our instructional decisions impact students, this is a great way to open the conversation or look deeply at data-based decision making. Though effect size should not be the primary rationale for choosing a strategy, I found the addition interesting.
I feel that this book is a good resource for educators looking to increase their knowledge of instructional strategies and their efficacy. The video links, through QR codes, and websites would also be helpful for teachers. Overall, the book is more technical and “textbook-like,” but gives a wealth of information. The book could also be helpful for literacy coaches as they work with teachers to determine how and why a strategy is effective.
