Review quote

"With discussion magnifying and confirming readers' critical engagement with texts, Fisher, Frey, and Lapp's Teaching Students to Read Like Detectives moves our field forward to the next level where the impact and influence of the Common Core State Standards challenge teachers and students to interact with texts in deeper, more complex ways. Drawing upon text-focused conversations that extend critical thinking and communication, Fisher, Frey, and Lapp deliver new expectations for instruction and learning through three key avenues: theoretical background for professional growth, classroom examples for those inside instruction viewpoints, and practical models and routines for smooth implementation. Teaching Students to Read Like Detectives is a handbook for teaching and learning in the 21st century." -- Kathy Headley "Professor and Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Studies, College of Health, Education, and Human Development, Clemson University, Clemson, SC"
