An indispensable guide for classroom teachers, literacy coaches, administrators, and teacher educators, Smart Answers to Tough Questions addresses today's most pressing issues in language, literacy, teaching, and learning-in conversational language and a reader-friendly format. The questions are real ones, some posed by educators themselves, and others frequently addressed to educators by parents, administrators, and the media. Each tough question is followed by a research-based "Bottom-Line Answer" that is drawn from government reports, stripped of jargon, and translated into clear, accessible prose.
