What Do Reviewers Say about the Seventh Edition?
“I appreciate that RTI is going to be addressed [in the Seventh Edition] in greater detail…. There will also be more stress on the English language learner and that, too is needed. Updates are so necessary on these topics.” —Deborah A. Farrer, California University of Pennsylvania
“Gunning’s literacy philosophy is one with which I am most comfortable, both as a literacy teacher and as an instructor of teacher candidates. This text provides a sound foundation for students to build their knowledge of methods and strategies for teaching in all areas of literacy. It is a flexible format, it is comprehensive, and it is easy to integrate into my course content.” —Beth A. Childress, Armstrong Atlantic State University
