"50 Instructional Routines to Develop Content Literacy is a valuable resource for teachers from all content areas to help students become better readers, writers, thinkers, collaborators, and communicators. The routines are grounded in sound research and pedagogy and the step-by-step directions and real-class/real-student examples and scenarios allow educators to move beyond theory to implementation. The short chapters allow for busy teachers to quickly sort through and select the best routines for any instructional purpose. The chapters also offer suggestions for differentiation, including for ELL students, so that the routines can be tailored to meet the needs of any group of students. This text is a toolbox that teachers from all content areas will find themselves referencing throughout the school year."

-- Lisa Lloyd, Hastings Middle School (Upper Arlington, Ohio)

"I found the material beneficial to me as a teacher and will definitely use some new techniques in with my students to improve literacy."

-- Danielle Morrison, Lincoln High School (Gahanna, Ohio)

"The organization of each routine is especially helpful: brief review of research, step-by-step guide, classroom examples, and relevant graphics, etc. It is refreshing to see a text that is so useful."

-- Tom Smyth, University of South Carolina Aiken
