Good Habits, Great Readers: Building the Literacy Community
What separates a good reader from a great reader? Good habits! Respected authors Doug Fisher and Nancy Frey join Adam Berkin to present a simple plan that helps teachers move students towards higher achievement by capitalizing on seven research-driven habits of strong readers. Each habit--from "reading to learning" to thinking critically--is explained in a dedicated chapter that prepares teachers to nurture good habits in all of their students, building a classroom community of avid readers. Great Readers See Themselves as Readers Great Readers Make Sense of Text Great Readers Use What They Know Great Readers Understand How Stories Work Great Readers Read to Learn Great Readers Monitor and Organize What They Read Great Readers Are Critical     Responses from the Field The authors have "nailed" it as far as the chapter topics capturing important issues in comprehension development go.  The order of topics is spot-on developmentally.  I am in awe of the skill the authors showed in integrating and operationalizing so many of the comprehension techniques and strategies that teachers are taught all through their coursework. Barbara Pettegrew, Otterbein College   I would consider this one of the best user-friendly approaches to critical literacy that I have seen. Roderick E. Winters, Winona State University   About the Authors Nancy Frey , Ph.D., is an Associate Professor of Literacy in the School of Teacher Education at San Diego State University.

'Fisher's book will appeal to scholars interested in historical macroeconomics and the industrial revolution. It suggests promising directions for future research, and it contains vast amounts of useful information. In time, specialists may find it to be an indispensable reference.'- Gary Richardson, Journal of Economic History In this study of the European economy from 1700 to 1910, the macroeconomic data from five countries is examined both descriptively and analytically (using structural and time-series methods). The UK receives three chapters, in view of the extensive literature in that case, while France, Germany, Italy and Sweden are each covered in a separate chapter.

Developing Arts Loving Readers: Top Ten Questions Teachers are Asking about Integrated Arts Education
Developing Arts Loving Readers is based on the premise that children can and do learn a great deal about the arts and their own abilities innately. Involvement and immersion, author Nan L. McDonald argues, are the ways in which children may feel welcome to write, move, create, draw, and otherwise express ideas about art and music directly. Teaching suggestions are offered to classroom teachers and other non-specialists, so that classroom-reading activities may be extended into group discussions, co-operative learning-arts projects, and creative performances. Appended are extensive resource lists for further integrated arts teaching in the classroom.
