"As an educator, Jacobs and Crowley just made it easier for me to help teachers define academic rigor alongside developmentally appropriate practices. As a father, they made it easier for me to believe that my own daughter may actually experience these concepts through teaching that makes sense to children. Thank you!" -- Vincent Costanza, Executive Director, Race to the Top-Early Learning Challenge, New Jersey Department of Education "There is nothing more crucial to the education of a child than to create a solid educational foundation in the primary grades. There have been no clearer and more passionate voices in the area of early childhood education than those of Gera Jacobs and Kathy Crowley. I highly recommend this book because it will assist educators in developing the right approach to teach standards and does so in language that is easy to understand and is immediately useable." -- Kevin Nelson, Elementary Principal, Beresford Elementary School "Jacobs and Crowley have provided primary teachers with a tremendous resource to assist them in helping their students meet challenging academic standards. The book provides foundational philosophies as well as practical suggestions to assist novice and experienced classroom teachers as they engage their students in rigorous classroom activities." -- Rick Melmer, Senior Adviser, South Dakota Board of Regents "This book is a perfect balance between easy-to-read research and practical application. 'Try This!, ' 'In a Nutshell, ' and 'Home-School Connections' are my favorite parts as they can be used by our teachers to enhance their classrooms immediately." -- Jennifer N. Lowery, Superintendent of Schools, Tea Area School District
