Review:

“The text provides invaluable information on how to assess as well as offer instruction to struggling readers ranging from emergent and beginning to older readers.” Ioney James, North Carolina A & T State University

 

From the Back Cover:

Featuring classroom-based, teacher-driven approaches to effective reading assessment and remediation, the new edition of this market-leading book provides up-to-date coverage of reading processes, their assessment, and their corrective instruction. The highly popular authors present thorough treatments of reading and writing at every stage of development and include assessments in their entirety for emergent literacy including concepts about print and the concept of word, and many tests of phonological awareness, developmental spelling, word recognition, fluency, and phonics knowledge.

 

Among the topics covered are a detailed treatment of Informal Reading Inventories (with examples from the authors’ Developmental Literacy Inventory); Lexiles and guided reading levels; running records; developmental spelling stages; emergent literacy assessments including concepts about print, the concept of word, and phonological awareness; reading and spelling-based tests of phonics knowledge; assessing and teaching students with limited English proficiency; and practical strategies for adapting instruction for special needs students in inclusive classrooms. The Eighth Edition has new chapters on Response to Intervention and on the teaching of culturally and linguistically different students.

 

The Eighth Edition incorporates these new features:

 

·         A comprehensive inventory for assessing emergent literacy, including several new assessments of phonological awareness (Chapter 3).

 

·         Detailed instruction for administering, scoring, and interpreting an informal reading inventory, plus sample sections of an IRI (Chapter 5 and in the supplements).

 

·         A thorough discussion of Response to intervention (Chapter 2).

 

·         Extensive assessment of the often-neglected topic of narrative comprehension of early readers (Chapter 3).

 

·         New instruments for assessing phonological awareness

 

·         New reading and spelling-based tests of phonics knowledge

 

·         A new instrument for assessing students’ developmental spelling in K through 12 (Chapter 8).

 

·         A new chapter on teaching culturally and linguistically different students (Chapter 9).

 

·         The Eighth Edition is organized by developmental levels, with explanations of reading issues at each level, approaches to assessment, and teaching methods delivered at the point of need.
