"Provides both distilled theory and research, with lessons you can teach tomorrow morning. It is a keeper . . .a textbook that pre-service and classroom teachers will want to keep and pull off of their professional bookshelf quite often. "—Shane Templeton, Ph.D.,University of Nevada, Reno
A bestselling, research-based guide to effective reading instruction, the Teaching Reading Sourcebook helps current and future educators bridge the gap between evidence-based reading research and actionable instruction strategies. Organized according to the guiding questions behind explicit instruction (what?,why? ,when?, and how? ), this third edition includes both a research-informed knowledge base and practical sample lesson models to use in the classroom. Teachers will learn about five key elements of an effective reading program—phonemic awareness, decoding, vocabulary development, fluency, and comprehension—and they'll get teaching tips and intervention strategies to help them put principles into practice.
A hands–on teacher's guide and an essential text for professional preparation, this book is a must–have for educators at every level.
