About the Author

Anita L. Archer, PhD, independent educational consultant, Portland, OR, USA and Charles A. Hughes, PhD, Department of Educational and School Psychology and Special Education, The Pennsylvania State University, USA


"If I had to recommend one book that would arm teachers with the instructional practices they need to have the greatest chance of dramatically improving their students' achievement, this would be the one. This is the definitive resource on explicit instruction. Every page is filled with detailed descriptions of how to implement the most powerful explicit instruction teaching practices. Brilliantly conceptualized and written, this book will be embraced by practicing teachers and administrators as well as those preparing future educators." - Donald D. Deshler, Williamson Family Distinguished Professor of Special Education and Director, Center for Research on Learning, University of Kansas, USA "Archer and Hughes have laid bare the architecture of effective instruction in this 'must-read' volume. Extensive research has converged on quality of instruction as the core ingredient in school improvement; the genius of this book is the clarity with which it explicates how this quality can be intentionally developed in every classroom. Each strategy or process is illustrated with concrete examples from diverse classrooms. In my 40 years in education, I have never before seen a book as insightful, comprehensive, and practical as this one. Every educator will treasure it!" - Kevin Feldman, Emeritus Director of Reading and Intervention, Sonoma County (California) Office of Education, USA
