If you teach with a workshop approach, this resource is for you. It was written in part by Lucy Calkins for writers workshop, but it works for readers workshop, too! I read it during Teacher Lab and was impressed. Read about mt Teacher Lab experience HERE. Here is a bit about the book from Borders' description:
Recognizing that there is a vast difference between children getting it and children holding on to what they have learned, Shanna lays out the universal principles of "stickiness" and describes how they can be used to tweak your teaching for a more lasting impact on young writers.
A Quick Guide to Making Your Teaching Stick is part of the Workshop Help Desk series.
