Teaching with Intention will remind you why you love Debbie Miller. When you read her work, you can tell that she remembers what it is like to be a teacher. Her friendly, approachable writing style makes her accessible to the average teacher. Her knowledge of reading research and her emphasis on the power of reflection makes this book an important one for staff developers interested in building teacher capacity. The planning guide for comprehension instruction alone is well worth the price. Debbie believes in teachers and in teaching. In this day of scripted programs and teacher-proof curriculum, this is a breath of fresh air. This one is not to be missed! :-)

Debbie Miller, an educator with 30 years of experience working with young children and the author of the book "Reading for Understanding" brings us this incredibly insightful and practical book about how to create a caring of culture of understanding, trust, mutual respect, and authentic learning experiences. Miller discusses the need to create a supportive learning environmental, both physically and mentally, where students can feel free to learn and develop at their own pace. Miller's conversational writing style make this a joy to read, while her rich experience make it a deeply personal learning experience. In essence she forces the reader to confront their own philosophy and expectations, stepping back from who they are and look at who they want to be. A very worthwhile professional development book for any practitioner.

Sugar's 'The Silent Crisis Destroying America's Brightest Minds" is a book that is all about educational reality, the facts on the ground, not vacuous educational theories. Sugar pioneered the SMARTGRADES school notebooks that contain the new learning technology, ACANDY Processing Tools, that empower students for academic success. She transformed my kids into Grade A students, soI speak from experience, not hypothetical theory.
