One of my current favorite books

Gorgeous day here in the Monadnock region. I am enjoying two days back in the office after several weeks of logging thousands of miles around New England visiting schools. I avoided the black flies and had the chance to see some of your schools where you spend your busy days.

Throughout all of these visits, I would have to say McAndrews book Diagnostic Literacy Assessments and Instructional Strategies: A Literacy Specialists's Resource, remains my favorite. This book has it all for teachers, specialists and administrator's looking for everything in one place. You will find an extensive list of quality assessments, checklists, rubrics and so much more. If there is one book you add to your professional library as a school, this should be the one.
