"This book offers motivation and inspiration for preservice and novice English teachers and provides reassurance and encouragement for the veteran teachers who feel burdened by the standardization of education. It takes into account the high-stakes accountability of our current environment and documents results from research based practices. The examples and lessons reassure us that effective teaching does not have to give way to 'teaching to the test'." -- Nelda R. Cockman, Clinical Assistant Professor
"Drawing from her experience as a coach, the author demonstrates the importance of modeling in the classroom by reading and writing alongside her students, taking risks, and building a strong community of learners in the process. This book will inspire good English teachers to become great literacy coaches." -- Robin Boswell, Middle School Language Arts Instructor
"It is possible to balance test preparation with advanced thinking, reading, and writing skills. This book shows you how."-- Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, May 2006
