DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

"Understanding Texts & Readers makes comprehension make sense. In it, Jennifer Serravallo narrows the distance between assessment and instruction. She maps the four fiction and four nonfiction comprehension goals she presented in The Reading Strategies Book to fourteen text levels and shares sample responses that show what to expect from readers at each. Jen begins by untangling the many threads of comprehension: Levels, engagement, stamina, the relevance of texts, and much more. Then level by level she: - calls out with precision how plot and setting, character, vocabulary and figurative language, and themes and ideas change as fiction across levels - specifies how the complexity of main idea, key details, vocabulary, and text features increases in nonfiction texts - points out what to expect from a reader as text characteristics change - provides samples of student responses to texts at each level - shares progressions across levels to support instructional planning"--

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

The Challenge Built to Last, the defining management study of the nineties, showed how great companies triumph over time and how long-term sustained performance can be engineered into the DNA of an enterprise from the verybeginning. But what about the company that is not born with great DNA? How can good companies, mediocre companies, even bad companies achieve enduring greatness? The Study For years, this question preyed on the mind of Jim Collins. Are there companies that defy gravity and convert long-term mediocrity or worse into long-term superiority? And if so, what are the universal distinguishing characteristics that cause a company to go from good to great? The Standards Using tough benchmarks, Collins and his research team identified a set of elite companies that made the leap to great results and sustained those results for at least fifteen years. How great? After the leap, the good-to-great companies generated cumulative stock returns that beat the general stock market by an average of seven times in fifteen years, better than twice the results delivered by a composite index of the world's greatest companies, including Coca-Cola, Intel, General Electric, and Merck. The Comparisons The research team contrasted the good-to-great companies with a carefully selected set of comparison companies that failed to make the leap from good to great. What was different? Why did one set of companies become truly great performers while the other set remained only good? Over five years, the team analyzed the histories of all twenty-eight companies in the study. After sifting through mountains of data and thousands of pages of interviews, Collins and his crew discovered the key determinants of greatness -- why some companies make the leap and others don't. The Findings The findings of the Good to Great study will surprise many readers and shed light on virtually every area of management strategy and practice. The findings include: Level 5 Leaders: The research team was shocked to discover the type of leadership required to achieve greatness. The Hedgehog Concept (Simplicity within the Three Circles): To go from good to great requires transcending the curse of competence. A Culture of Discipline: When you combine a culture of discipline with an ethic of entrepreneurship, you get the magical alchemy of great results. Technology Accelerators: Good-to-great companies think differently about the role of technology. The Flywheel and the Doom Loop: Those who launch radical change programs and wrenching restructurings will almost certainly fail to make the leap. “Some of the key concepts discerned in the study,” comments Jim Collins, "fly in the face of our modern business culture and will, quite frankly, upset some people.” Perhaps, but who can afford to ignore these findings?

What readers have to say"My students keep this text. This book is captivating to students, and they report that it encourages them to think from various perspectives. It contains helpful text lists, assessments and reproducible materials."--Angela J. Cox, Georgetown College" There are so many strategies available, the ones listed in the book are some of the major and successful strategies. The Instructional Focus helps to narrow down strategies to what the students want to build their lessons about. Grade Level Designation is very useful, allowing students to make sure they are using appropriate grade-level strategies."--Deborah A. H. Williams, Wayne State University" The strategies are the essential ones I use in my course. English Language Learner features are a critical component because few of my students have had any interaction with English learners and need significant helpunderstanding second language literacy."--Charlotte L. Pass, SUNY Cortland
