Treasure this addition to your professional library as you delve into the works of 34 leading educators who have helped shape the best in literacy instruction for today's children. This volume was compiled by the editors of The Reading Teacher from 1989 to 1999. They selected articles from the journal's Distinguished Educators series and invited all authors to contribute an autobiography and update their original articles. The result is a rich collection of scholarly thinking that has guided literacy instruction into the 21st century-theories on schooling, learning, and reading research; an exploration of teaching and the lasting impact of great teachers on their students; school-based issues, especially as they relate to school reform; curricular issues and instructional practices; and assessment and evaluation. Don't miss out on this opportunity to expand your knowledge of how children learn written language, and how you and your colleagues can support this learning.
