Shelves: professional
I don't want to dwell on David Coleman's credentials, I don't want to focus on how much of the reform movement is funded by Gates and how he is trying to privatize public education, or how Pearson is taking over the world -- I just want to move on, understand what is being asked of me and my students, and figure out how to do that effectively. I've only read the first chapter and flipped through the rest, but so far I like it and am looking forward to reading this closely. The chapter I read did ...more

A must read for all workshop teachers and administrators.

A great resource for educators (or any stakeholder) who want to build an understanding of what the new CCSS mean and how they fit in with our knowledge of best practice in literacy.

Highly recommend for a book study with colleagues - I got so much more from the collaborative conversation. There's a free study guide on Heinemann's website too.

This book clearly explains the shift to the ELA Common Core standards. I highly recommend it for both educators and parents. Everyone needs to understand the shift being made if we are to succeed on this journey.

Given the direction of the Common Core State Standards, this book is excellent. Makes the path much clearer to the classroom teacher.
