Description:

"Successful early literacy intervention must be designed for individuals and delivered by trained teachers in the first two years of school." "Literacy Lessons: Designed for Individuals," in two parts, provides administrators and specially-trained teachers with guidance for managing the early literacy intervention called Reading Recovery. It answers the questions of Why?, When? and How? individual literacy lessons for young children at risk can be highly successful. This book is remarkable. It's an outstanding guidebook for training teachers. It is rich in presentations of theoretical concepts and clear rationales for early literacy intervention procedures. New procedures and more extended discussions of familiar procedures are carefully presented and clearly linked to research and theory. Familiar research on oral language development and current or newer research related to brain functioning and cognitive development are woven into discussions, and the frequent suggestions of additional reading are extremely helpful.Many aspects of this book are valuable. The arguments supporting the need for instruction designed for the idiosyncratic needs of each child at risk are important. The recurring references to individual instruction woven across the book reinforce those arguments. Sections such as What is 'reading' during the early lessons?, What does it mean to 'know' a letter? What does it mean to know aword? will facilitate good discussions and teacher understanding. Both teachers and administrators will gain powerful insights about early literacy intervention for at-risk learners from the two texts. The potential effect on the education of young children is profound. - Professor Mary Anne Doyle, University of Connecticut Chair, Executive Board of the International Reading Recovery Trainers Organization. A comprehensive review of Reading Recovery in the United States by five distinguished authors is available separately at the RRCNA Web site. Authors Maribeth Schmitt, Billie Askew, Irene Fountas, Carol Lyons, and Gay Su Pinnell share their knowledge and provide persuasive evidence for the power of an early investment in changing futures of children.

Marie M. Clay started off her career as a teacher before going on to work at the New Zealand Ministry of Education in the Psychological Services Department. Some time later, Clay went to work for the University of Auckland, where for the next thirty years, she trained other psychologists for their jobs. Clay used her knowledge of normal and clinical aspects of developmental psychology to teach others as a visiting professor at the Ohio State University, University of Illinois, Texas Woman's University, Oxford University, and the Institute of Education at the University of London. President of the International Reading Association from 1992-1993, Clay still advocates a literary awareness program that urges teachers to think about literary betterment and the power of writing.
