Published Date: Apr 18, 2011


The new 6th edition of the highly popular, market-leading Teaching Children to Read, 6/e is a must-have resource for pre-service and new teachers alike. It presents a comprehensive, evidence-based approach to reading instruction that reinforces the centrality of the teacher’s role in every aspect of teaching and learning. The authors organize each chapter into seven pillars of evidence-based, effective reading instruction: Teacher Knowledge, Assessment, Evidence-Based Instruction Practices, Response to Intervention, Family and Community Connections, and, new to this edition, Motivation and Engagement, and Technology and New Literacies. The book uses color-coding for each of the seven pillars making navigation of each chapter easy and accessible.
