In Closing the Circle, Sean Walmsley offers education practitioners at all levelsa€”district and school administrators, curriculum supervisors, staff developers, literacy coaches, classroom teachers, and special education teachersa€”a coherent framework along with practical advice for setting Ka€“12 language arts expectations and for effectively guiding instruction, assessment, reporting, and data analysis. Distilled from the author's extensive experience working with schools and districts, the framework enables educators to prioritize literacy learning and work together more productively to achieve better literacy outcomes for all students.
