Developing Literacy Reading and Writing to, with, and by Children by Timothy G. Morrison, Brad G. Wilcox

Here is a comprehensive view of all of the elements that are essential to developing effective literacy and providing the necessary gradual release of responsibility for reading and writing from teachers to students. Developing Literacy by Morrison and Wilcox gives teachers the big picture and helps them consistently implement what they know about reading and writing. It shows the connections with the Common Core State Standards and the IRA Standards, includes unique Try This for Teaching and Try This for Professional Development boxes to help apply the concepts, and features samples of teacher and student work to further illuminate the concepts.
