New Scholastic Professional books help K–12 educators prep for back-to-school

School supplies are lining store aisles and summer vacations are winding down. It’s officially back-to-school season, and Scholastic is releasing two new professional titles to help K–12 educators and students reach their full potential in the year ahead!

The books are from leading education experts Carol Chanter, Rosemarye T. Taylor, Jan Richardson, and Michèle Dufresne, who are dedicated to maximizing the potential of everyone in a school, from students to administrators. Here are the details on their new books, which cover instructional coaching partnerships and guided reading with word study and phonics.

The Coaching Partnership: Collaboration for Systemic Change by Rosemarye T. Taylor and Carol Chanter is the second edition of their resource for creating collaborative coaching partnerships among K–12 teachers, instructional coaches, mentors, administrators, and other leaders to grow student achievement. With more than 50 years of combined experience in education and research, the authors have outlined guidance for implementing evidence-based frameworks, clearly defining processes and goals, and encouraging innovative thinking, all centered on the belief that accountability is necessary for continuous improvement.

This book is now available:

The Next Step Forward in Word Study and Phonics by Jan Richardson and Michèle Dufresne provides K–8 educators with practical strategies for planning and teaching developmentally-appropriate and targeted word study lessons, including phonics and spelling, as part of a program for guided reading levels pre-A–Z. The lessons encompass six different approaches based on a gradual release of responsibility model and fit within Richardson’s best-selling The Next Step Forward lesson plan framework.

This book will be available at the end of August 2019 with pre-orders open now:
