"I see the goal as an attempt to answer the needs of knowledgeable teachers and reading specialists working with adolescents in school settings. I think the authors have struck a near perfect rendition of the scope needed to address their goals."

Rod Winters, Winona State University

 

"The authors' in-depth description of classroom management and organization should go a long way toward alleviating fears that teachers have of implementing word study in the intermediate or secondary grades. Teachers of any subject area can immediately begin using these strategies in their classrooms and feel confident doing so. Every middle or high school teacher should have a copy of Words Their Way ® with Struggling Adolescent Readers in their classroom regardless of the subject being taught."

David Smith, University of Nevada, Reno
