We are especially interested in titles written for K-12 classroom teachers that focus on formative assessment strategies, writing instruction, teaching literacy across content areas, and motivating readers at all grade levels.
IRA’s professional development books support the growth and advancement of classroom teachers, reading specialists, and other literacy professionals throughout their careers.
