"Dr. Smith's book, Discovering Effective Reading Instruction, is a true discovery. He easily explains the reading process and offers solutions and resources that are ready to implement in any classroom. He breaks the reading process down into a step-by-step process that is easy to follow and understand. It takes differentiated reading instruction to the next level as it shows how to find what skills students are missing, how to fill the holes, and move them on to the next level. He takes the hard task of small group instruction and simplifies how to implement it and do it well. This should be in the hands of every classroom teacher as it takes away the teacher guessing and gives them the tools to help every student meet or exceed grade level reading goals." Dawn Kennison-Kerrigan, Instructional Coach "The ideas in Discovering Effective Reading Instruction are easy to apply. It is a great resource for veteran teachers and new teachers alike. I have seen firsthand how a scientific approach to reading builds a strong foundation for all readers but especially those with learning disabilities. Every elementary teacher needs this book!" - Ashley Nicodemus, Kindergarten Teacher and Language Specialist "Discovering Effective Reading Instruction covers so many important reading topics in a way that any teacher (novice or seasoned) should be aware of. Dr. Smith reminds us that reading is not a natural brain function, and simplifies many of the more complex reading skills. He emphasizes the importance of phonological/phonemic awareness as a foundation for later reading instruction, as well as touching on topics such as dyslexia and small-group instruction. The book reads with the tone of a mentor sharing information on the importance of reading instruction." Michelle Raible, Title I Teacher

First, let’s commend ourselves: how in the midst of a pandemic we faculty stepped up at record speed to teach in such a foreign learning environment. Try we did, adapt we did, and learn we did. But to be clear, and we already recognize this, this past spring was less about distance learning and more about crisis teaching. This time around we have the opportunity to be much more purposeful and intentional, and that’s where The Distance Learning Playbook for College and University Instruction will prove absolutely indispensable. Much more than a collection of cool tools and apps, The Distance Learning Playbook for College and University Instruction mobilizes decades of Visible Learning® research to reveal those evidence-based strategies that work best in an online environment. Supplemented by video footage and opportunities to self-assess and reflect, the book addresses every dynamic that must be in place for students to learn, even at a distance: Faculty-student relationships from a distance Teacher credibility from a distance Teacher clarity from a distance Engaging tasks from a distance Planning learning experiences from a distance Feedback, assessment, and grading from a distance Keeping the focus on learning, from a distance or otherwise What does our post-COVID future hold? “We suspect,” Fisher, Frey, Almarode, and Hattie write, “it will include increased amounts of distance learning. In the meantime, let’s seize on what we have learned to improve post-secondary education in any format, whether face-to-face or from a distance.” “We are all still active faculty members, committed to teaching, scholarship, and service. The unexpected transition to remote learning doesn’t mean we no longer know how to teach. We can still impact the lives of our students and know that we made a difference. The Distance Learning Playbook for College and University Instruction will show you how.” ~Douglas Fisher, Nancy Frey, John Almarode, and John Hattie
