What other bloggers are saying…

Here is a quick roundup of some reviews of Stenhouse books we came across recently in the blogosphere:

Metaphors & Analogies: Power Tools for Teaching Any Subject by Rick Wormeli:
“Metaphors and Analogies provides an excellent starting point for understanding the promise and pitfalls of these important devices, and I would encourage you to explore Wormeli’s book for yourself.  In the spirit of its title, it truly is a buffet for the hungry mind,” writes blogger Patrick Woessner on Technology in the Middle.

Keith Schoch at How to Teach a Novel, is also enthusiastic about Rick’s latest: “His work, however, is so far the most practical title I’ve seen on the topic, offering teachers simple steps for improving their instruction through the use of metaphors and analogies. Every page provides subject-specific examples, allowing readers to easily understand the real-life applications to the classroom.”

Small Group Intervention (DVD) by Linda Dorn and Carla Soffos:
“As I am building more interest in staff development and literacy leadership, I especially enjoyed this resource. I look forward to eventually sharing the DVD with others to support literacy instruction development,” says Mrs. V at Snapshots of Mrs. V.

A Place for Wonder: Reading and Writing Nonfiction in the Primary Grades by Georgia Heard and Jennifer McDonough:
Sarah Amick over at Amick’s Articles gives a thumbs-up for Georgia Heard’s latest book: “She seems to understand the plight that we are all in this topsy turvy world of assessment driven instruction. And yet, she doesn’t stray from the fact that our youngest learners need to be held in their world of wonder, that that world need not be taken away from their early in their learning. She understands that school can be a place where children are dumped information into their little minds instead of discovering it for themselves.”
