Reviews

"Readers will explore text complexity and all its various parts: quantitative measures, qualitative values of literary texts, and qualitative aspects of informational texts. While reading the first four chapters, I was reminded of our responsibilities for designing and planning instruction. As a result, my copy is filled with stars, asterisks, and sticky notes. . . . In Chapters 5-9, teachers will find a wide range of tasks designed to help students read complex texts with competence and confidence. I thought Chapter 8, Exploring Peer-Led Tasks, was my favorite chapter until I got to Chapter 9, Exploring Individual Tasks. Then it was a toss-up!. . . This second edition, co-published with the International Literacy Association, will "stretch" both teachers and students!" -- Anne Anderson
