Om forfatteren

A former city and suburban teacher, Harvey Daniels now works at the Center for City Schools at National-Louis University in Chicago. Along with a team of veteran teacher-consultants, “Smokey” helps teachers, schools, and districts implement progressive literacy structures such as literature circles, reading workshop, and integrated curriculum. Smokey is the author or co-author of nine other books on language, literacy, and school reform, including Methods that Matter: Six Structures for Best Practice Classrooms (Stenhouse 1998) and Best Practice: New Standards for Teaching and Learning in America’s Schools (1998). He has also created a videotape, Looking into Literature Circles (Stenhouse 2001). Daniels and his colleagues host the website www.literaturecircles.com where teachers can find additional information and support.
