Chapters are:(1) On-Task Literacy Learning in the Everyday Classroom;(2) On-Task Talk: Productive and Explicit Teaching;(3) Literacy Lessons Built on Interaction;(4) Assessment: Knowing and Responding to the Learner;(5) On-Task Teaching and Learning: A Framework for Focused Teaching;(6) On-Task Thinking: Reflective Teaching and Learning; and (7) Reshaping Professional Development for On-Task Teaching.
