This market-leading text sets the standard for reading instruction to ensure that aspiring teachers are able to help students learn not only how to recognize words, but also how to comprehend what they read--and enjoy the process. The book balances new approaches to reading, such as language arts integration and emergent literacy/literacy as a continuum, with more traditional foundations of strong skills and phonics instruction. Updates to the Eleventh Edition include discussion of the latest technology for literacy learning, how writing instruction impacts literacy learning, and recent movements in literacy assessment.
