Second Edition of Mosaic much more practical!

Ellin Keene has added a lot more depth and practicality in her second edition. All teachers of reading should read this book!

Great for Literacy Collaborative Teachers

I loved this book. I couldn't put it down and finished it in less than a week. It is chock full of great reading teaching points and literature discussion starters. I definitely plan on using this book while planning this year. My husband laughed at me because I tabbed so many of the pages. Excellent book on language arts for teachers.

Comprehension Across All Levels

Susan and Ellin's dedication to teachers and classrooms across the Nation shines through in this second edition of Mosaic of Thought. Their detailed descriptions of comprehension lessons across all grade levels and with teachers from many places help us see the universal truth of these core comprehension strategies. These powerful strategies are not just about reading, but are ways of thinking deeply that can impact learning in any content area in every school across our country and our world. Every person who looks to our children as the future should read this book.

Best professional book!

I can't recall ever wanting to read a professional text more than once. I almost couldn't wait to finish the book so that I could read it again. I find myself using the strategies they discuss in my own reading and of course, in my student's. I plan to use this text as a handbook for reader's workshop in my class this year.

If you teach, work with, or have children, own this book!

The style of this book is different than any I have read before. However, it has put into writing the ideas I have come to believe about the high-level processes involved in truly reading and learning to read. I have personally bought copies of this book for the six new teachers at my school and as a team, we are discussing and synthesizing all of the information shared in Mosaic. I CAN NOT explain the depth of the joy of teaching, feelings of empowerment as an advocate for student thinking, and enthusiasm for learning these young teachers are demonstrating since we began! Other teachers are so very curious; even our kindergarten students are responding with high level connections and thinking! As a parent of teenagers, I wish I had known the ideas shared in this book to have been able to develop the depth of thinking in my own children's reading as they have grown up. Teachers, student teachers, administrators, and parents--You should OWN this book and read it! You will not forget or regret it.
