Cris Tovani
   
Cris Tovani taught elementary school for ten years before becoming a high school reading specialist and English teacher. A nationally known consultant, she chooses to continue teaching high school students full-time. She has also worked for many years as a staff developer for the Denver-based Public Education and Business Coalition (PEBC), the consortium that has received national acclaim for its work in reading comprehension reform. Her book "I Read It, But I Don't Get It", and her new video series by Stenhouse, has helped thousands of teachers nationwide improve their instruction in reading comprehension.

Ellin Oliver Keene, author of Mossaic of Thought, says, "Cris is a teacher of teachers as well as of kids. Building on research that clearly defines thinking strategies proficient readers use to comprehend, Cris shows how she has taught kids to probe more deeply, think more profoundly, reflect, and struggle for insight.

Cris teachers us that kids of any age and background who are treated with respect, trusted to be brilliant, and shown how to be more proficient readers and writers, will dramatically surpass our highest expectations."
