Peter Dewitz

Peter Dewitz is coauthor with Jonni Wolskee of the Heinemann title Making the Most of Your Core Reading Program. He has decades of experience and the goal of giving the best possible support to teachers in any classroom context. “We’ve written this book,” write Peter and Jonni, “to help teachers in core programs feel more confident about making decisions that benefit all readers.” Peter is a researcher who has studied core programs, a professor, and a staff developer with public schools, especially Reading First schools. During this work and the research he has published on it, he came to understand that following a core reading program with fidelity usually shortchanged struggling readers, bored the best readers, and often turned reading instruction into a mind numbing routine for students and teachers alike.
