In a comprehensive, evidenced-based, accessible book, renowned authors D. Ray Reutzel and Robert B. Cooter, Jr. show clearly that it is the teacher who makes the difference in the development of literacy in children grades K-8.
Reutzel and Cooter’s unique approach organizes each chapter around seven pillars of evidence-based, effective reading instruction: Teacher Knowledge, Assessment, Effective Instruction Strategies, Response to Intervention, Family and Community Connections, and, new to this edition, Student Motivation and New Literacies/Technology.
Here’s what makes this new Sixth Edition unique:
· Two new pillars of effective reading instruction–Motivation and Engagement andTechnology and New Literacies–have been added to the previous edition’s five pillars. Now each chapter is organized into seven pillars of evidence-based, effective reading instruction: Teacher Knowledge, Assessment, Evidence-Based Instructional Practices, Response to Intervention, Motivation and Engagement, Technology and New Literacies, and Family and Community Connections. Teachers can count on each chapter’s presentation to follow a predictable organization.
· Greatly expanded coverage of working with English learners includes important information about the particular learning needs of English learners plus methods for assessment and instruction.
· Marginal A+RISE Teaching Strategies align with relevant concepts in the main body of the text.
