9780135008362: Teaching Children to Read: The Teacher Makes the Difference

The new 6th edition of the highly popular, market-leading Teaching Children to Read, 6/e is a must-have resource for pre-service and new teachers alike. It presents a comprehensive, evidence-based approach to reading instruction that reinforces the centrality of the teacher’s role in every aspect of teaching and learning. The authors organize each chapter into seven pillars of evidence-based, effective reading instruction: Teacher Knowledge, Assessment, Evidence-Based Instruction Practices, Response to Intervention, Family and Community Connections, and, new to this edition, Motivation and Engagement, and Technology and New Literacies. The book uses color-coding for each of the seven pillars making navigation of each chapter easy and accessible.

From the Back Cover:

In a comprehensive, evidenced-based, accessible book, renowned authors D. Ray Reutzel and Robert B. Cooter, Jr. show clearly that it is the teacher who makes the difference in the development of literacy in children grades K-8.

 

Reutzel and Cooter’s unique approach organizes each chapter around seven pillars of evidence-based, effective reading instruction: Teacher Knowledge, Assessment, Effective Instruction Strategies, Response to Intervention, Family and Community Connections, and, new to this edition, Student Motivation and New Literacies/Technology.

 

Here’s what makes this new Sixth Edition unique:

 

·         Two new pillars of effective reading instruction–Motivation and Engagement and Technology and New Literacieshave been added to the previous edition’s five pillars. Now each chapter is organized into seven pillars of evidence-based, effective reading instruction: Teacher Knowledge, Assessment, Evidence-Based Instructional Practices, Response to Intervention, Motivation and Engagement, Technology and New Literacies, and Family and Community Connections. Teachers can count on each chapter’s presentation to follow a predictable organization.

 

·         Greatly expanded coverage of working with English learners includes important information about the particular learning needs of English learners plus methods for assessment and instruction.

 

·         Marginal A+RISE Teaching Strategies align with relevant concepts in the main body of the text.
