About

Overview

This market-leading text sets the standard for reading instruction to ensure that aspiring teachers are able to help students learn not only how to recognize words, but also how to comprehend what they read--and enjoy the process. The book balances new approaches to reading, such as language arts integration and emergent literacy/literacy as a continuum, with more traditional foundations of strong skills and phonics instruction. Updates to the Eleventh Edition include discussion of the latest technology for literacy learning, how writing instruction impacts literacy learning, and recent movements in literacy assessment.

Features and Benefits

  • Suggestions for supporting English Language Learners appear throughout the text, with many discussions highlighted by margin icons.
  • “Seeing It in Practice” presents vignettes of how actual classroom strategies are used, offering an authentic, practical context for the strategies and materials discussed in the text.
  • “Putting It into Practice” provides model activities, lesson plans, and teaching suggestions that students can try in field experiences, in student teaching, or in their own classrooms.
  • “Time for Reflection,” located at strategic points throughout each chapter, encourages readers to think about the subject matter and decide where they stand on debated issues.
  • “For Your Journal...” presents topics that students can write about in order to further their understanding of the ideas and methods presented in the chapter.
  • “Anticipation/Reaction Guides” at the beginning of each chapter help students activate their background knowledge, provide purposes for reading the material, and offer opportunities for post-reading reinforcement of chapter concepts.
  • TeachSource Video Cases (accessed online) are referenced throughout the text to provide vivid examples of many of the strategies and techniques shown in the book. Accompanying critical-thinking questions and journal assignments promote deeper understanding.
