Review quote

[W]e need resources that show us how to support students in developing their full literacy
potential. In this very practical and insightful book, Fisher and Frey examine how conceptions of
text complexity are causing us to shift some of our ideas about reading instruction. Rigorous Reading
is an important resource that will help teachers align reading instruction in powerful ways.--Linda B. Gambrell, Professor In Rigorous Reading: 5 Access Points for Comprehending Complex Texts, Fisher and Frey help teachers
understand how to bring vigor to rigor. They teach us how to help students understand more from
their complex texts--greater understanding that will help to bring life and energy to each student's
reading. Rooted in solid research, this is book is a must-read for those grappling with how to
translate the recommendations and mandates around text complexity into instructional practices.--Jennifer Serravallo With Rigorous Reading, Doug Fisher and Nancy Frey have provided literacy educators who are
committed to successfully raising the bar with solutions that make sense. The book is masterfully
developed with an extensive reach across many grade levels in terms of defining what it means to
provide intentional instruction and teaching text complexity. The five access points are discussed
pragmatically with evidence of a solid research base deftly woven throughout the book. This is
the most practical book I have come across in terms of providing teachers with the knowledge
base and assistance many are seeking to improve their instruction with regard to complex texts.--Steven L. Layne, EdD This is a bold book. . . . It is genius, and its unique contribution, is in bringing the balance and
the centeredness to new education standards.--P. David Pearson
