Here’s practical, easy-to-access information teachers need to become master literacy teachers—while ensuring that they meet the literacy needs of each and every student in the classroom. In keeping with the premise that it is the teacher who makes the difference in effective reading instruction, this book helps educators become capable literacy teachers by showing them how to think deeply about their teaching decisions in order to understand and best meet their students’ literacy needs.
In this new edition the authors have updated their previous five pillars of effective reading instruction—Teacher Knowledge, Classroom Assessment, Evidence-Based Teaching Practices, Response to Intervention (RTI), and Family and Community Connections—and add two new pillars to this edition: Motivation and Engagement and Technology and New Literacies. The seven pillars provide a logical and consistent structure for closely examining the essential elements that well prepared literacy teachers know, understand, and are able to implement in classrooms. Teachers are encouraged to use the seven pillars to ground their thinking about future teaching in order to successfully develop and perform their vital roles in helping all children become successful readers and writers.
