The New Art and Science of Teaching Reading helps teachers feel excited to teach students—not just to teach reading. Simms and Marzano share a multitude of instructional strategies that yield cognitively complex tasks for students and cultivate a mindset of continuous improvement not only in educators but in their students as well.”

Blair Perzentka, English teacher, Marshall High School, Wisconsin

“Very well written and easy to follow, this book is packed full of practical tools and resources for reading instruction, planning, and reflection that teachers can use immediately in their classrooms. Simms and Marzano do a brilliant job of connecting their reading-specific model of instruction with Marzano’s instructional framework that emphasizes feedback, content, and context.”
