    One thought on “Schools That Work: Where All Children Read and Write”

    1. Just used the third edition for my class Managing the School Reading Program. Very accessible for undergraduates in our reading minor.Lots of good ideas but the big take away (not surprising with Allington and Cunningham as authors) that it is all about good teaching. A lot of good insights about time models versus teaching models.

    2. I own the 2nd and 3rd edition of this essential resource. It is one of the initial texts that got me thinking about portfolio assessment as an alternative to all of the standardization happening in schools today. That is only one small snippet in this comprehensive book about leading and learning in education.
