Overview

Now an international educational consultant, Sousa previously taught junior and senior high school science, served as a K-12 director of science, was a supervisor of instruction and a superintendent of public schools, and taught at the university level at both Seton Hall U. and Rutgers U. He first presents the current scientific understanding of how young humans acquire spoken language and then use that capability when learning to read, and then discusses instructional strategies for teaching reading, recognizing reading problems, helping students overcome reading problems, the differences between developmental reading and content area reading, and the essential pieces needed to develop, select, implement, and support an effective reading program. For parents and educators. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
