Franki Sibberson Reviews So What Do They Really Know?

July 27th, 2011

Franki Sibberson, at AYear of Reading (and co-author of Beyond Leveled Books and Still Learning to Read, with Karen Szymusiak) has reviewed Cris Tovani’s latest book, So What Do They Really Know?

“This is a book that I read from cover to cover and one that I plan to go back to again and again as I struggle with the place of assessment in literacy instruction.  Cris takes us back to the most important reasons classroom teachers assess students–in order to make decisions on where to go next…to use assessments to inform our instruction.  No matter what level you teach, Cris gives us something important to think about when it comes to assessment. It is a book that will reground readers.”

For the full review and a video featuring Cris discussing her new book with Samantha Bennett, visit .  We have the full book available for  preview at the Stenhouse site .
