“This book is about school--the place where almost all of us learned some very important lessons about life. … We learned that language is powerful. It brings pleasure, excitement, and a way to express what we think. We learned to become literate human beings and to know that reading, writing, thinking, and talking are an integral, necessary part of life. . .The goal of all of the instructional practices described here is joyful independent reading and writing, as well as deep thinking, and rewarding talk about students’ thinking.”- Gay Su Pinnell Responsive Literacy is indeed comprehensive. It addresses every aspect of school life from professional development to phonics and handwriting. The book is based on an extension of Marie Clay’s work, making it available in remarkable clarity and detail. Filled with ideas, demonstrations, and the logic of practice, it is a great tool for getting everyone in the school on the same page.
