BOOK EXCERPT:

Donalyn Miller says she has yet to meet a child she couldn't turn into a reader. No matter how far behind Miller's students might be when they reach her 6th grade classroom, they end up reading an average of 40 to 50 books a year. Miller's unconventional approach dispenses with drills and worksheets that make reading a chore. Instead, she helps students navigate the world of literature and gives them time to read books they pick out themselves. Her love of books and teaching is both infectious and inspiring. The book includes a dynamite list of recommended "kid lit" that helps parents and teachers find the books that students really like to read.

BOOK EXCERPT:

A gripping literary thriller and smash bestseller that has taken Italy, France, Germany and the UK by storm. Six severed arms are discovered, arranged in a mysterious circle and buried in a clearing in the woods. Five of them appear to belong to missing girls between the ages of eight and eighteen. The sixth is yet to be identified. Worse still, the girls' bodies, alive or dead, are nowhere to be found. Lead investigators Mila Vasquez, a celebrated profiler, and Goran Gavila, an eerily prescient criminologist, dive into the case. They're confident they've got the right suspect in their sights until they discover no link between him and any of the kidnappings except the first. The evidence in the case of the second missing child points in a vastly different direction, creating more questions than it answers. Vasquez and Gavila begin to wonder if they've been brought in to take the fall in a near-hopeless case. Is it all coincidence? Or is a copycat criminal at work? Obsessed with a case that becomes more tangled and intense as they unravel the layers of evil, Gavila and Vasquez find that their lives are increasingly in each other's hands. THE WHISPERER, as sensational a bestseller in Europe as the Stieg Larsson novels, is that rare creation: a thought-provoking, intelligent thriller that is also utterly unputdownable.

BOOK EXCERPT:

To listen to Mary Howard's podcast "Principles for Success with RTI" click here. This book is desperately needed in districts and state departments everywhere. It is loaded with interventions that are right for kids and right for the educators who serve them. It profiles RTI as a framework for increasing intentional instruction...keeping the emphasis on knowledgeable educators rather than "programs." If this book could become a prerequisite to implementation, I fully believe that the goals of RTI may well be realized. -Linda Hoyt Author of Revisit, Reflect, Retell, Updated Edition Response to Intervention (RTI) is here, but what do teachers need to know about it? As Mary Howard investigated that question, she was surprised: the more she knew about it, the more this "teacher's teacher" was excited by it. That's because RTI promises to use the great teaching you know to catch readers before they falter. With RTI from All Sides, she shows how to make RTI live up to its promise. In RTI from All Sides, Howard points the way toward thoughtful and effective RTI-and away from potentially dangerous, rigid implementations. She offers suggestions for instructional design, collaboration, and troubleshooting-even for avoiding mediocre RTI products. Most important, she demonstrates how to apply the principles you trust to RTI: teaching reading and writing in authentic ways to help students choose just-right books that set them up to read in and out of school using simple, ongoing assessments to know when to intensify instruction inside and outside the regular classroom differentiating reading instruction to maintain the flow between whole-class, small-group, and one-on-one instruction while meeting specific students' needs designing interventions to amplify instruction instead of sidelining students to skill-and-drill that takes them further from engaged, proficient reading coordinating efforts within and between instructional supports to emphasize acceleration through the targeted instruction students need to succeed. In addition, Howard includes helpful questions that lead book study groups to a better understanding of RTI, its structure, its implementation, and its daily application. RTI has the potential to return instructional decision-making to teachers and to galvanize schools to design effective practices for helping all readers achieve-especially those who struggle. Read RTI from All Sides and get the information you need to create a safety net that can save struggling readers before the learning gap widens forever.
