Congrats to “The Sisters!”

June 14th, 2010

At last week’s annual meeting of the Association of Educational Publishers, The CAFE Book by Joan Moser and Gail Boushey won the 2010 Distinguished Achievement Award in the Assessment Tools category.

In The CAFE Book: Engaging All Students in Daily Literacy Assessment and Instruction, Gail and Joan present a practical, simple way to integrate assessment into daily reading and classroom discussion. The CAFE system is an acronym for Comprehension, Accuracy, Fluency, and Expand vocabulary. The system includes goal-setting with students, posting of goals on a whole-class board, developing small-group instruction based on clusters of students with similar goals, and focusing whole-class instruction on emerging student needs.

Gail and Joan have more than forty years of teaching exerpeience between them. They are also the authors of The Daily Five and the DVD Daily Five Alive! They are full-time elementary teachers and nationally recognized consultants who specialize in literacy, assessment, and creating classroom learning spaces.
