Editorial Review:

Written in Calkins' graceful and passionate style, The Art of Teaching Reading serves as an eloquent and desperately needed reminder of what matters most in teaching.

  • Incredibly valuable resource for current and future teachers and educators.
  • Offers a wealth of practical classroom examples to demonstrate principles and methods in practice.
  • "I can think of no one in New York City who is more trusted by school people than Lucy," - Judith Rizzo, Deputy Chancellor for Instruction, New York City Board of Education.
In The Art of Teaching Reading, nationally acclaimed educator Lucy Calkins offers a compelling glimpse into the methods, insights and day-to-day classroom practices which have helped hundreds of teachers do more in the teaching of reading than most dreamt possible. This is the story of brilliant teachers whose children learn to read with eagerness and to talk and write in stunning ways about their reading. Full of inspirational classroom stories, The Art of Teaching Reading is even more powerful when one considers that the methods Calkins describes are transforming teaching practices across the largest school district in the world.

Lucy Calkins is a Professor of Curriculum and Teaching at Teachers College, Columbia University, and an acclaimed speaker, with frequent keynote addresses at conferences across the country. She is also the author (or co-author) of numerous books, including the best-selling sister volume, The Art of Teaching Writing (Heinemann), Raising Lifelong Learners: A Parents' Guide (Perseus Books), and A Teacher's Guide to Standardized Reading Tests: Knowledge is Power (Heinemann).
