Introduction

After years of intense debate in the "reading wars," the swinging pendulum of fads and fancy in reading instruction seems to be settling into a more inclusive and complete view. Comprehensive reading instruction is now regarded by most classroom teachers and reading scholars as the only viable position to take in relation to philosophy and classroom practice (see, for example, Pearson, 1999; Pressley, 2002; Rayner, Foorman, Perfetti, & Seidenberg, 2002). As we have continued to work in real-world classrooms, it has become increasingly apparent that children, and the profession itself, can benefit from this settling of the pendulum on comprehensive reading instruction.

For the second edition of Strategies for Reading Assessment and Instruction, our intent was to compose a book containing the best research-proven assessment and teaching strategies from the field of comprehensive reading instruction. This is a ready reference to assist classroom teachers in identifying and solving problems encountered by students as they advance on the path of becoming fluent, strategic, and successful readers. Each chapter is self-contained and, starting with Chapter 5, includes these special segments:

  • Brief research updates that serve as a kind of "executive summary for teachers."
  • Assessment strategies and tools for determining each child's reading needs and abilities.
  • An Intervention Strategy Guide for linking assessment findings for each student to the teaching strategies that can help them grow and succeed as readers.
  • Highly effective teaching strategies from the research on comprehensive readinginstruction in such areas as alphabetics (i.e., phonemic awareness, alphabetic principle, phonics), comprehension, fluency, and much more.
  • Special strategies for English Language Learners (ELL, ESL, bilingual).
  • Accommodations for students with special needs.

FOR THE PRACTICING EDUCATOR

Classroom reading teachers will also discover that Strategies for Reading Assessment and Instruction provides an extensive compendium of research-validated practices and assessment tools to (1) inform your daily instruction, (2) meet the needs of individual learners, and (3) develop an understanding of the essentials of comprehensive reading instruction. For those who teach in special education resource rooms, Title I reading programs, and university reading clinics, this volume likewise provides a wide-ranging collection of strategies to assist students with special needs.

ADVANTAGES FOR PRESERVICE TEACHERS

For preservice teachers, this second edition of Strategies for Reading Assessment and Instruction offers a practical resource for understanding past and present issues in reading instruction and assessment. It also provides ready-to-use assessment tools and related instructional strategies you can use in your field experiences in reading instruction, clinical experiences, and student teaching assignments.

AS A TOOL FOR PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOPS

Strategies for Reading Assessment and Instruction is an ideal tool for ongoing professional development. This book contains the latest in research on comprehensive reading instruction, highly effective assessment, and teaching strategies, and presents this information in an easy-to-use format that makes the implementation of new methods in the classroom quick and easy. In fact, the first edition of Strategies for Reading Assessment and Instruction was used as the primary resource in literally hundreds of workshop sessions on comprehensive reading instruction across the United States.
