Classrooms that Work: They Can All Read and Write
Longman, 1999 - Education - 284 pages
This extraordinary book by two of the best-known researchers in the field of reading education provides hands-on, practical, skill-based strategies for supporting basic literacy in all children. Starting with a fresh look at what has and hasn't worked, Cunningham and Allington lead readers through the basics of reading and writing instruction (including the best of the phonics-based approaches) in kindergarten, primary and intermediate classrooms to "Beyond The Classroom: Things Worth Fighting For". The second edition includes a new chapter with ideas for supporting the most struggling students; a greater emphasis on integrating instruction with science and social studies; new strategies for helping students decode big words; and more emphasis on ways to make instruction multilevel. This book should be on every teacher's shelf -- and every parent's nightstand.
