Dr. Elaine Weber - Co-author of Guided Highlighted Reading and Reading to the Core

"Thanks to the work of these three authors and their colleagues, we have proof that students early in their reading years can read to understand; analyze text for what it says and how it says it; and evaluate text to determine how it supports meaning." - Dr. Elaine Weber

School Library Connection - Neely Swygert, Info Tech Specialist/ Teacher-Librarian, Gadsden Elementary, SC

"The introduction explains the background, purpose, framework, and organization before providing a sample lesson. There are sections in each lesson for: Common Core State Standards, background knowledge, Tier 1, 2, and 3 vocabulary, and teacher guided prompts to use over a four-day period, guiding students into deeper comprehension of the topic. . . .I have mentioned this strategy to our reading coach, special education teacher, and curriculum resource teacher, and they all feel this could help students gain a deeper understanding of topics. Recommended." - School Library Connection
