Tucker presents clear advice and guidelines for fostering collaboration among colleagues, improving teacher effectiveness by involving teachers as learners, and engaging teachers in planning for their own growth and development. Included are contributions from classroom teachers across grade levels, literacy coaches and reading specialists working in school districts, representatives from outside agencies, teacher educators, administrators, and parents in both urban and rural school settings. Also included are connections to the Common Core State Standards and Response to Intervention, and discussions of how ethical literacy leaders face and solve problems.
