This respected volume delivers solid information on how to teach students to read, based on evidence from a broad spectrum of well-designed research.

Maintaining a balance of theory, research, and effective classroom practice, the 17 chapters discuss early reading instruction, phonemic awareness, comprehension, and many other topics. Each chapter concludes with “Questions for Discussion” to encourage reflection, and a free study guide available at the International Reading Association website can be downloaded to make the book even more useful for school-based learning communities and other PD settings.
