You are purchasing a like-new copy of this book. Other than a name written inside the front cover and slight dulling of the finish of the cover, it doesn't appear to have been used.
The reading and writing processes have historically been kept apart, but with this series you can explore their richness for yourself and your students in ways that unite the processes meaningfully and productively.
In Build a Literate Classroom, learn how to work with your children to improve learning and uncover their potential. The "Actions" in this book help you rethink learning and change your use of time so children can be lifelong readers and writers: organize the classroom, shorten conferences, keep records, work with skills, conduct mini-lessons, and systematically evaluate progress.
