Index

"The book appeals to any educator who wants to make a difference, who wants to prevent students from losing that love of learning, falling through the cracks, or being permanently labeled 'at risk.'"

Patti Hendricks, English/Language Arts Teacher
Sunset Ridge Middle School, Midvale, UT

"The detailed coverage includes descriptions of how to use the program, program costs, statistics on several years' implementation of the program, and how to involve parents and the community. The authors provide many instances in which educators have met or exceeded expectation for growth using the Success for All program, leaving the reader with the feeling that the greatest concern is what is best for the child!"

Pamela Opel, Science Curriculum Coordinator
Gulfport School District, Biloxi, MS

"The book offers a good background for any school or school system that is considering changing their reading curriculum."

Sandra Kraynok, Kindergarten Teacher
Rock Cave Elementary School, WV

"Breaks down the Success for All program and shows the statistical gains in schools that implemented the program."

Cynthia Woods, Kindergarten Teacher
Walker Elementary School, Monticello, KY
