“This is the most comprehensive look at third-grade literacy instruction I have seen. It is engaging reading, offering captivating glimpses into the minds and classrooms of teachers and their students. The authors bring together theory, research-based practices, and useful tools. Teachers will find this book accessible and practical, and it is perfect for courses in elementary education, reading, and language arts at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. It is especially appropriate for those professors and programs seeking to embed standards and competencies throughout the curriculum.”

—Alysia D. Roehrig, PhD, Florida State University

“I wish this book had been published before I started my third-grade teaching career! I found myself nodding my head in agreement with the information and advice these authors offer to novice third-grade teachers.”

—Jo Anne Deshon, EdD, third-grade teacher, John R. Downes Elementary School, Newark, Delaware

“The picture of third grade painted in this text gives the third-grade teacher a model for solid literacy instruction. The authors do an excellent job of weaving in the latest research on practices that most effectively teach literacy skills. This provides the reader not only with great ideas for classroom instruction, but also with the basis for any choices made. I would recommend this book to any new third-grade teacher who wishes to implement a strong and research-based literacy program in the classroom. Teacher educators, principals, and literacy coaches also will find it a useful reference.”

—Lisa Bernstein, MEd, third-grade teacher, Dr. Bessie Rhodes Magnet School, Skokie, Illinois
