Explaining Reading, Second Edition: A Resource for Teaching Concepts, Skills, and Strategies
This bestselling teacher resource and widely adopted text demonstrates the "whats," "whys," and "how-tos" of explicit reading instruction for struggling K–8 learners. The book describes 23 skills and strategies associated with vocabulary, comprehension, word recognition, and fluency. Ways to explain each skill or strategy are illustrated in real-world examples that teachers can use as starting points for their own lessons. Retaining the straight-talking style that made the prior edition so popular, the second edition has been revised and updated to reflect reader feedback and the latest research.

Review: Explaining Reading: A Resource for Teaching Concepts, Skills, and Strategies (Solving Problems in the Teaching of Literacy)User Review - Laura Tortorelli - Goodreads
This book is WRONG. WRONG, WRONG, WRONG about phonics, sight words, and word knowledge. Really good on the comprehension stuff, but so ignorant and WRONG about how kids learn to read in the first place! Teachers beware! Read full review
