Published: Stenhouse Publishers - February 2nd, 2009

Students don’t need tests, they need a life-long love of reading and a critical eye for periodicals or a broader media literacy. Gallagher addresses these needs by creating templates that are readily usable, enable student success, and theoretically valid. The article of the week assignment has prompted rich discussions of current events, and the one-page independent reading assessment is a favorite of my incoming freshmen who have grown weary of the typical middle-level book reports. ~ Reviewed by Bonnie Winchester
