“Cunningham and Allington’s voice and presentation style are unique, and I think this distinguishes their book from others. This book is an enjoyable and exciting read for my students. It makes them want to get out there and teach. They walk away from it with not only a sound set of teaching strategies, but a strong sense of why they would use them, and a belief that they can teach like this…Bravo!”—Donna H. Topping, Millersville University

“[Classrooms That Work]’s strengths are the knowledge of the authors, the organization and conversational tone of the text, and the emphasis on “all children can learn”…. I believe the information presented changed my students’ perspectives on how reading and writing should be viewed and taught.”—Brenda Bradshaw, Southwest Missouri State University

“[This book] is easy to understand. The most distinguishing feature is that it is comprehensive and less than[350] pages. It is practical in ways others are not.”—Dr. Susan McBridge, California Polytechnic State University

The fourth edition of Classrooms That Work emphasizes a core set of ideas across a variety of timely topics, providing a comprehensive, balanced treatment of instructional reading methods for struggling and culturally diverse students.

Pat Cunningham and Dick Allington, with their clear and friendly writing style, emphasize the importance of promoting the integration of phonics and literature-based process writing and reading instruction to enhance ALL students’ learning and reading skills. It clarifies concepts, defines key terms, and offers just the right balance of research and practical coverage to make the content complete without being overwhelming.

This affordable book helps teachers engage all children in meaning-centered reading by fostering powerful decoding and comprehension strategies and implementing a balanced reading program. It identifies and explores five components: real reading and writing, guided reading, guided writing, decoding/spelling, and word/word knowledge.

The fourth edition is filled with workable, practical strategies and activities to use in the classroom. This book plays upon readers' natural curiosity and desire for relevance by offering a modern, applied approach to “traditional” reading topics and an in-depth look at areas of reading instruction not covered by other books. Chapters 11, 12, and 13 describe a sample day in a Building Blocks kindergarten, a sample day in a Four Blocks primary classroom, and a sample week in a Big Blocks intermediate classroom, respectively. Combined, these chapters show how all of the important components of a balanced literacy program can be integrated.

For the fourth edition, the authors have reorganized the chapters to reflect an integrative approach to literacy—this new edition starts with Creating Classrooms That Work, a chapter that summarizes the characteristics of the most effective classrooms. Other chapters on words, comprehension, writing, and assessment inform teachers of the need for a balanced approach to literacy.

There are also three new chapters in this edition: “Creating Enthusiastic, Independent Readers” (Chapter 2) contains ideas for helping all children become independent readers. “Building Vital, Vivid, and Valuable Vocabularies” (Chapter 5) describes practical strategies for building meaning vocabulary. “Building the Literacy Foundation” (Chapter 3) describes activities to get young children off to a successful start in reading and writing.

For any experienced teacher, Cunningham's condescending, dogmatic style borders upon the insulting. Carefully read, her "best methods" approach, "research-based" book is neither supported, cited nor properly footnoted within the confines of her book. In spite of that fact, her books are being implented as if they were "Bibles" in numerous districts throughout the USA. In fact, the bureaucrats of the state of Illinois are requiring that we teach her methods!
Most of the material covered in her books is so very basic that most any teacher does a great deal of it already while this author gets rich.
Teaching is an art not a Patricia Cunningham book.
I recommend that you save your money and buy something creative and thought-provoking to make teaching exciting and not (any more) exhausting.

I used to value Allington's words, but having heard him demean and disrespect colleagues as well as the disconnect between his spoken words and his written words, I would suggest that there are far more valuable books to spend time reading.

Woefully low reading scores across America are , in part, a reflection of the teaching philosophy represented in this book. Many of the lessons focus on strategies that encourage students to guess unknown words. In Chapter 5, entitled Teaching Phonics and Spelling Patterns, the first bolded subtopic describes the activity "Guess the Covered Word". The authors suggest using a combination of looking at the first letter of the covered word and guessing a word that may fit the sense of the sentence. Rasheed likes to play s ---------. the text reads, "...some students will guess anything that begins with that letter...sand....Respond with something like 'Sand does begin with an s, but I can't write sand because people don't play sand.' Finally, uncover the whole word and see if any guesses were correct. Repeat the procedure on the remaining sentences. Rasheed likes to play soccer." Teachers trained in intensive phonics first would ask students to apply their knowledge of phonics to decipher the word. PERIOD If not a part of their vocabulary they would have to then guess the meaning or look the word up, but they would not waste time with trying to guess the word from the first letter or the context. Being able to read any word independently without the use of context, pictures, etc. and fluently, within context are signs of a proficient reader. Being able to read with comprehension is a function of language arts and development of vocabulary. The text contains some useful activities for enhancing reading and writing AFTER a child has mastered the foundation of reading (phonics). However, this is typical of university texts that provide "incidental" use of phonics along the way, instead of first building on THE foundation for reading an alphabetic language. Most educators in training will not be taught how to teach children to read. They will have a conglomerate of activities. How's that workin' for us?

Classrooms That Work is a great reading and writing resource. It tells what strategies have been tried in the reading field. It tells what has worked and what hasn't worked. After you get through that, it gives you tons of strategies to use in your classroom when teaching reading and writing. The best things about these stratgies are that they are easy to implement and they work. You can also modify them to make them more suitable for you. These strategies allow all students to be successful in your classroom. This book is a great one to keep on hand. Although it is aimed for grades K-5, you could easily adapt or modify the strategies to work in your middle school classroom. I have many new strategies to try with my students this September!

Pat has done a masterful job of combining the best balanced literacy practices into one easy-to-manage program. Her 4Blocks model is a surefire way to ensure that your students are learning from all angles. My only criticism is that the guided reading block does not quite fit for grades 3 and above. Pat says that your kids should read multiple books over the course of the week - each at different levels. However, beyond second grade, books are much longer, thus making it impossible to expose your students to such a wide range of levels each week.

This book changed my mind about teaching literacy skills, and the result is Special Day Class students who are reading, who love reading, and who actually TRY to read things. This book is full of great ideas that work: so many ideas that you wish you could use them all! My copy is already dog-eared and filled with sticky notes, highlighting, and notes in the margin. I've told all my teacher friends to get this book! GET THIS BOOK!
