Teachers rave about Thomas Gunningâs strategies to promote higher-level skills!
"I think this book would make an exceptional subject for an in-service workshop for all teachers of any school since the strategies can be applied at any grade level. I would enjoy participating or teaching a workshop of these ideas. The author seems to have created a knowledge base that is desperately needed in todayâs educational environmentâ¦especially in theâ¦world of high-stakes testing, merit pay, and low-performing schools."
-Sylvia Hoke, MacArthur Junior High School, AR
"I find the organization of the book logical, moving from an overview of specific issues, to assessment, to remedies and application. The writing style is personable and clear.Â The anecdotes and practical applications are, of course, the âgood stuff,â and it is impossible to ever have enough of them."
-Polly Bill, Brandywine School District, DE
