What are your colleagues saying about Creating Literacy Instruction for All Students in Grades 4 to 8 ?
I love the Exemplary Teaching feature as it uses the context of Show Me and I Understand methodology. I particularly like the special needs accommodations for Struggling Readers and ELL students.
Dr. Marilyn L. Haller, Oklahoma Baptist University
Compared to other texts I am familiar with, this one provides a comprehensive overview of the principles guiding each chapter and includes thorough explanations of a variety of strategies and methods for addressing each concept in the classroom. The appendices also include a wealth of useful information and resources.
Dr. Shirley Lefever-Davis, Wichita State University
The author did a wonderful job of explaining complex ideas. There was a good mix of theory and
research with practical application. I especially like the lessons that are included throughout the
text. As students begin field experiences this text would be a great resource for them.
Jennifer Wimmer, University of Nevada, Las Vegas
Based on its highly successful parent text, this comprehensive, practical text provides its readers with step-by-step guidance for teaching all major aspects of reading and writing to students in grades 4 to 8.
In response to today's needs to tailor instruction for the middle grades (4—8), the second edition of this text features sample lessons for virtually every major literacy skill/strategy and offers numerous reinforcement suggestions and generous listings of materials appropriate for the middle grades. Dr. Tom Gunning presents the theories behind the methods, so readers will be free to choose, adapt, and/or construct their own approaches as they create a balanced evidence-based program of literacy instruction.
