Doing What Works: Literacy Strategies for the Next Level will assist educators as they support students in the mastery of vocabulary, comprehension, and study skills required by the Common Core State Standards. All strategies have been carefully selected based on their ease of use, utility in terms of scaffolding, differentiation, and simplicity of format. Judy Tilton Brunner designed this key sourcebook for educators who need or want to cultivate their students' vocabulary development, reading comprehension, note taking, and general study skills. Doing What Works provides practical, effective, and research-based strategies to help students remember and understand what they read at the highest levels of cognition: layering of texts, close reading, collaborating, using a variety of sources, teaching uncommon vocabulary, and posing text-dependent. By incorporating these teaching strategies into classroom instruction, educators will teach with purpose, and students will learn with independence.

Judy Brunner's new book is a great resource for anyone interested in promoting literacy! Judy provides practical, effective, and researched based strategies that will appeal to pre-service or practicing educators at all levels. Even parents can use this easy to read book. The book includes over eighty different strategies that have been organized into three chapters on vocabulary, comprehension, and note taking. For each strategy, Judy explains why to use the strategy, which types of text the strategy will work with, grade level adaptations, a step-by-step process, suggestions for questions at most levels of Bloom's Taxonomy, benefits, considerations, suggestions for differentiation, and recommendations for diversifying the strategy through the use of technology. Judy also highlights terms in each strategy description that are related to the Common Core State Standards. This book is a winner, and I believe it will help you improve the reading proficiency of your students. I highly recommend it! -- Anthony Pieper, President, Iowa Reading Association, Beaman, IA
