Review:

CORE READY LESSON SETS: 3-5 Books ""[This is an] innovative text that effectively presents reading and writing as what they truly are: vital tools that our students need in order to live successful lives. It calls upon students to become active lifelong learners and challenges them to extend their reading and writing abilities. Its lessons give students the "hands on approach" that is needed to motivate them to become effective analysts and authors.... Most importantly, all literacy skills taught in this text are presented in the same way that our students will see them in their adult lives. This book will bring life into your reading and writing workshops. This is the text that all effective teachers have been asking and waiting for."" ""I love what this book stands for academically. I love how easy it is to follow. I love how it contains everything from the pre-assessment of a skill until the final rubric. This book would allow me to spend more time teaching and less time planning/preparing. A home run for both me and my students."" -- Elizabeth Smith, Madison Elementary School (VA) ""Inspiring. Genuine. Talking from down in the trenches not from up on high. Brings the Common Core down from the rafters for a more manageable understanding."" -- Wendy Fiore, Chester Elementary School (CT) ""I would strongly recommend it to colleagues and my administration because I feel it would be a resource series that would ultimately improve the way I teach literacy. I haven't felt that way about a PD book since grad school." "-- Katie Lynn Klaus, M.S.Ed

Praise for the CORE READY series: ""[T]his is a great way to teach ELA.... a group of teachers could use this to change their core reading program... I see this as a way to truly become a reader and writer for today's world.""-- Edward Karl Shultz, Midwestern State University ""This book is so inspiring! I hope many districts adopt your program! It will change the lives of many students for the better!""-- Elizabeth Smith, Madison Elementary School (VA) ""Pam Allyn's impressive book, Be Core Ready, provides practical, useful, and insightful advice on how to implement the Common Core State Standards. Her conversational tone, passion for literacy, and, above all else, her unwavering commitment to doing what is best for all learners will help educators build core strengths in every student. Multiple copies belong in every school's professional development collection."" -John Schumacher, Teacher-Librarian ""In this informative yet accessible book, Pam Allyn draws upon her extensive understanding of the Common Core State Standards and the changes they demand for literacy education to offer innovative strategies and implementation techniques that develop college and career readiness and inspire all students to become 'curators of ideas' and lifelong readers, writers, speakers, and listeners. I will definitely use the Core Ready Series in my ongoing work with teachers and city schools.""-Ernest Morrell, Teachers College, Columbia University " "An inspiring book; filled with thought-provoking insights into the Common Core standards. Pam alleviates "core anxiety " by providing innovative ways to fill any gaps that may exist in your current classroom practices. She takes a look at the everyday literacy skills utilized by a variety of professionals and weaves a link down to our youngest learners. Pam's explanations of the necessary "shifts" I need to make in my teaching are user- friendly and easy to implement. I love the Colleague Conversation starters designed to open dialog
