Appropriate for upper level undergraduate education courses in Reading Instruction. This is an excellent guide for learning about the Direct Instruction method that is gaining wide attention as part of a balanced approach to reading instruction . . . with its wealth of carefully sequenced, highly-prescriptive procedures for teaching decoding, comprehension, content, and study skills. Rather than merely list ways to teach reading skills, the Direct Instructional Reading method this text recommends, discusses when a skill should be taught, what examples to teach, how to correct errors, and the relationship among different reading skills.
