This book is an incredibly helpful tool for any elementary reading teacher. It breaks down Common Core standards into actionable habits any teacher can use in his or her classroom. Every teacher should read and utilize this book, specifically the extensive resources provided, including sample lesson plans, prompting guides, and lesson frameworks.
