In this new book, David Booth answers questions from real teachers about building skills in literacy, from phonics to comprehension, from simple exercises to rich reading materials. Drawing on more than 40 years of experience in education, David shares hard-learned lessons about what has – and hasn’t – worked for him. This is both a practical guide and a personal chronicle of growth in the classroom.
