This book will become a reference that will be used and reused!
I have found anything written by Dorn and Soffos to be great reads - filled with depth - yet comfortable and always causing me to think and reflect as a reader.
This is not your typical one time read book!
These books will be re-used over and over by teachers and others as they build the literacy interventions. The books truly become "guidebooks".
