Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher


To Our Readers:

One of us recently visited a first-grade classroom when a young boy approached and said, Hey you teacher, you wanna watch me read? His room was filled with print. There was a fantastic classroom library with hundreds of storybooks and expository text and a well-equipped writing center complete with computers with software and a kid-friendly word processing package. Most important of all, there was an enthusiastic teacher who was talking about an engaging story they would study through the week. We had observed this teacher many times before as she skillfully blended phonics skills, vocabulary and comprehension all while sharing her love of reading wonderful stories with her students. Yes, indeed this young boy was going to be a successful reader.

One of the greatest challenges we face today is also including and sharing information about reading and writing with families. To help with this challenge we have included practical ideas for building parent-teacher partnerships. Likewise we included dozens of ideas about collecting information about children’s constantly developing skills and how this assessment data can guide teachers’ daily instruction. We have also added new features on adapting instruction to meet the needs of English language learners and children with special needs.

Teaching young children learn how to read and then helping maturing students use reading to extend their learning is the purpose of this text. We use the research to guide our text and grounding it in real teachers’ daily practice.

It is our hope that this new edition of Teaching Language and Literacy will be a text that helps to develop, inform and guide your practice and help your students become passionate and skillful readers. We believe that you will find it valuable to keep this book as part of your professional library. It will come in handy many times in your upcoming teaching career.

Wishing you all the best throughout your teaching careers!

Jim Christie, Billie Enz, and Carol Vukelich
