Publisher's Summary

Two teachers. Two classrooms.
One school year.

180 Days represents the collaboration of two master teachers - Kelly Gallagher and Penny Kittle - over an entire school year: planning, teaching, and reflecting within their own and each other's classrooms in California and New Hampshire. Inspired by a teacher's question, "How do you fit it all in?" they identified and prioritized the daily, essential, belief-based practices that are worth spending time on. They asked, "Who will these students be as readers and writers after a year under our care?" 

What we make time for matters: what we plan, how we revise our plans while teaching, and how we reflect and decide what's next. The decision-making in the moment is the most essential work of teaching, and it's the ongoing study of the adolescents in front of us that has the greatest impact on our thinking.

With both the demands of time and the complexity of diverse students in mind, Kelly and Penny mapped out a year of engaging literacy practices aligned to their core beliefs about what matters most. They share their insights on managing time and tasks and offer teaching strategies for engaging students in both whole class and independent work. 

180 Days. Make every moment matter. Teach fearlessly. Empower all students to live literate lives.

Required Reading for Educators!

Lots of wisdom in here for educators. English teachers will find this book super inspiring, but all teachers should read it help kindle a revamp of literacy diets. Leadership also needs to read this book and take it upwards to parliament. Great book!
