Reviews

Vanessa Zimmermann
I thoroughly enjoyed the dialogue and thoughtful questioning that this class cultivated. Importantly, Jeremiah's flexibility echoed Donalyn Miller's (The Book Whisperer) own unique take on how we teach reading . . . . and how we support teachers who teach reading too. Great class!
Roxanne Albrighton
The class was motivating and interesting. I enjoyed the book and the way it made me regard and rethink reading assignments. The classroom assignments were helpful and thought provoking.
Erin Hanratty
I enjoyed this class and being able to hear from other grade levels in order to work on helping our students become life long readers. I recommend this class to people who love to read and have some interest in more than just the basic reading programs, but to think outside the box.
