MEDIA REVIEWS
"The authors have written a highly accessible book that could change not only the way teachers teach and students learn, but also contribute to the satisfaction that both teachers and students feel at the end of the day." -- Cynthia L. Wilson, Associate Professor of Teacher Education
"This book has challenged me as a teacher, and I believe others will become better teachers with this book." -- Renee Peoples, Fourth-Grade Teacher
"Teachers and administrators will find this book valuable. It has a strong theory and research base along with concrete examples from many classrooms." -- Marilyn Duncan, Literacy Consultant
"The authors have spent years thinking and writing about the conditions necessary to design, implement, and reflect upon for teachers to be intentional in our work and what independence means for our students. Their book acts as a personal coach for any teaching wanting to increase the rigor of their classroom, establish a classroom of independence, manage their own planning time productively, increase parent support, and truly increase student achievement." -- Dawn Christiana, Teacher, Literacy Consultant
"This excellent book covers all aspects of what teachers can do with their students to help them develop as independent learners." -- Linda Lee and Mary Haymond, Multi-age Classroom Teachers
"This one will be dog-eared, highlighted intensely, and readily accessible on the corner of my desk. However, in the spirit of this book's call for independent thinking, don't take my word for it. Read and judge for yourself. You won't be disappointed." -- Rick Wormeli, Columnist
