1) New: Classroom libraries from Harvey & Goudvis
Strategies That Work Classroom Library Collections, by Stephanie Harvey and Anne Goudvis Set your students on the path to becoming engaged, thoughtful, independent readers with these collections of children's books curated by Stephanie Harvey and Anne Goudvis, authors of the landmark Strategies That Work, Third Edition.

Steph and Anne selected fiction and nonfiction picture books for grades K through 5, drawing from the Strategies That Work bibliography and incorporating the strategies identified in the book. Each grade range includes a collection of fifteen to twenty anchor texts which are books that will intrigue and engage kids in whole-class interactive read-alouds. These anchor texts are organized according to the strategy that best matches the nature of the text, and can be used flexibly to teach multiple strategies.

An extended collection of an additional fifty to sixty titles provides further opportunities to implement and practice comprehension strategies, and allows kids to use a variety of strategies as they read independently.

Collections arrive prepackaged in book bins and optionally include a copy of Strategies That Work, Third Edition.

2) Clearing up the confusion around guided reading
Preventing Misguided Reading, by Jan Burkins and Melody Croft Guided reading is not really about levels, benchmark texts, or offering the right prompts to students when they struggle with words. Rather, guided reading is, for us, about supporting children as they develop strategic approaches to meaning making.
—Jan Miller Burkins and Melody M. Croft in Preventing Misguided Reading

Feeling exhausted after guided reading? Are you working tirelessly while your students aren't even breaking a sweat? Do you ever wonder if other teachers feel the same way you do about guided reading: that it's not working the way you think it should? You are not alone.

Now available from Stenhouse, Preventing Misguided Reading gives you 27 strategies to help you work through the challenges as you guide groups of readers. Jan Burkins and Melody Croft share personal clarifications, adaptations, and supports that have helped them work through their own tricky parts as they guide readers.

3) Excellence through listening, speaking, and questioning
Literacy Essentials, by Regie Routman Because face-to-face conversations can be infrequent in our age of social media, we educators must ensure we promote and facilitate students' opportunity to talk and experience productive conversations in our classrooms and in their lives outside of school. Of utmost importance: if we want students to invest in complex thinking and sharing of ideas, they must believe their voices matter.
—Regie Routman, in Literacy Essentials

In two new excerpts from the Excellence section of Regie Routman's upcoming book Literacy Essentials, she shows us how to promote opportunities for dynamic conversations with and by students and she elaborates on how to establish a thriving culture of readers.

Read sections "Listening, Speaking, and Questioning" and "Teaching Readers":
