MEDIA REVIEWS
"A unique, insightful addition to the literature on the Common Core. Coaches, teachers, reading specialists, and school curriculum leaders will all benefit from the authors' distinctive perspective. The authors are experts in literacy coaching, and their knowledge and practical experiences permeate each chapter. The book details what coaches need to know about the CCSS in very practical terms and provides numerous supportive tools."--Maureen McLaughlin, EdD, Reading Department, East Stroudsburg University of Pennsylvania; President (2013-2014), International Reading Association

"Elish-Piper and L'Allier offer literacy coaches many practical suggestions for integrating the CCSS into their work with teachers. They have designed valuable tools that literacy professionals can use in different coaching situations. Clear examples show how real coaches have applied the book's strategies to help their own schools transition toward implementation of the CCSS. An important addition to any literacy coach's toolkit."--Joanna Lieberman, MEd, District Literacy Coach, Cambridge (Massachusetts) Public Schools

"Provides comprehensive, research-based advice in an engaging format. Elish-Piper and L'Allier bring to this book their years of experience as researchers and teacher educators as well as their in-depth knowledge of literacy coaching. The book gives both new and experienced coaches an invaluable framework for understanding their role, and draws the reader in through many examples and cases. Coaches can really help their schools address the CCSS through the strategies offered here."--Elizabeth Sturtevant, PhD, Director, Division of Elementary, Literacy, and Secondary Education, George Mason University

"Based on research and peppered with common sense, this book is respectful, timely, and easy to follow. The authors have artfully incorporated seminal work on teaching adult learners throughout the book--information that literacy coaching books often lack. This is a wonderful addition to the field and a great resource for teacher leaders in the era of not-enough-time."--Enrique A. Puig, EdD, Director, Morgridge International Reading Center, College of Education and Human Performance, University of Central Florida

"With pressure growing to implement the Common Core well, this book is a superb, hugely practical addition to the field. It offers insightful at-your-fingertips material that will jump-start beginning coaches who want to quickly be successful. Seasoned coaches also will benefit greatly from the book's specific coaching strategies--whole school, small group, and individual/m-/along with examples of how they are put into practice. I am very excited to engage in the discussions and efforts this book will spark. For those in coaching roles who care deeply about nurturing both teachers' and students' learning, I believe this book will quickly become a 'must-have' resource."--Nancy L. Shanklin, EdD, Literacy, Language and Culturally Responsive Teaching Program, University of Colorado Denver
