Diagnostic Teaching of Reading, 7/e, by renowned author Barbara J. Walker, is the ideal resource for pre-service and in-service educators, including teachers, reading specialists, literacy coaches, school psychologists, special education teachers, and Title I teachers. In it they see how to use a variety of instructional and assessment techniques to help plan lessons designed to improve literacy for all learners in their charge.
Included are over 65 instructional techniques that meet the diverse learning needs of all students, including struggling readers and writers, English language learners, and culturally diverse learners. With the information presented here, teachers see how to continually reflect on their instructional practices and tailor their instruction to the strengths and needs of the diverse children they teach.

“What I like about Barbara Walker's text is that it connects assessment to instructional techniques and materials. Most other books provide chapter overviews that are disconnected. This book brings everything together in a way that supports all readers and helps teachers make effective instructional decisions.”
