We need more titles like this.
What a helpful book. I can only hope Audible will obtain more books to assist teachers to help children become book lovers. I also down loaded Choice Words (another great help).
I would love to see Debbie Miller's and Richard Allington's books here too. I also want to see The Responsive Classroom offer some books on Audible.
This book is a great start!

Practical strategies that work
This is a very practical book for teachers of all grades who value reading. The production quality is not brilliant because it comes from a live workshop, but there is a lot to be gained from listening to her talk more than once whilst taking notes. Her experience and insights can only help teachers develop their repertoire of teaching strategies. The most important aspects of her talk for me, came in the second half of the talk and touched on how thinking and reading are linked. Her tactics for empowering students to communicate their thoughts are useful in all subject areas. If this had been transcribed and re-read by another person, it would get 5 stars from this audio-reader.
