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.

Coverage You Won’t Find Anywhere Else . . .

  • The emphasis on English Language Learners (ELLs) within regular classrooms has been enhanced, with expanded coverage of Sheltered English, assessment for ELLs, and children’s books for both struggling readers and ELLs. Throughout the text are many marginal annotations on Adapting Instruction for English Language Learners.
  • A unique Appendix A provides a carefully selected graded listing of 400 outstanding books. Included are easy, average, and challenging fiction and informational books at each grade level.
  • In keeping with the overriding theme ofbuilding higher-level literacy, each chapter has at least one segment devoted to developing higher-level skills, and marginal notes entitled Higher-Level Literacy have been added throughout.
  • The coverage of assessing for learning has been amplified throughout the text, and strategies for continuous progress monitoring have been included.
  • Suggestions for improving performance on high-stakes tests have been added.
