A research-based, practical, comprehensive guide to teaching literacy in K-8 classrooms In an era of rigorous standards, Teaching Children to Read provides the essential information and strategies pre-service and new teachers need to help their students develop into capable and confident readers. The importance of the teacher's role is emphasized in every chapter using seven pillars of effective reading instruction: Teacher Knowledge; Classroom Assessment; Evidence-Based Teaching Strategies; Response to Intervention (or Multi-Tiered Systems of Support); Motivation and Engagement; Technology and New Literacies; and Family and Community Connections. Filled with recommendations made by the Institute of Education Sciences' What Works Clearinghouse and links to IRIS Center instructional modules (in Revel), the 8th Edition provides the research-based tools and knowledge needed to plan and deliver up-to-date, effective reading instruction in today's classrooms. Teaching Children to Read, 8th Edition is also available via Revel(TM), an interactive learning environment that enables students to read, practice, and study in one continuous experience.
