In their own voices, teachers, principals, literacy specialists, and students offer real-life examples of changes that led to dramatic improvement in literacy skills and—perhaps just as important—increased joy in teaching and learning. Scattered throughout the book are “Quick Wins”— ideas and actions that can yield positive, affirming results while tackling the tough work of long-term change.
At a time when education initiatives are ramping up expectations for student achievement, Read, Write, Lead offers proven methods and thoughtful insights to guide educators from struggle to success, from uncertainty to confidence, from good to remarkable!

Learn how to use the Discourse and Writing Cycle, a highly effective instructional technique that takes the guessing out of the process of teaching writing across different subject areas in grades 4–12. The authors show content area teachers how the process of structured classroom discussion on a carefully chosen text, followed by writing, works in their grades—from upper elementary through high school classes in English language arts, math, science, and social studies—and provide clear models for implementation. Classroom examples and sample lessons make it easier for you to inspire students to become confident and competent writers.
