This market-leading text sets the standard for reading instruction to ensure that aspiring teachers are able to help students learn not only how to recognize words, but also how to comprehend their reading materials--and to enjoy the process. The book balances new approaches to reading, such as language arts integration and emergent literacy/literacy as a continuum, with more traditional foundations of strong skills and phonics instruction. Updated coverage in the Tenth Edition includes the latest uses of technology for literacy teaching and learning. This text's updated coverage and enhanced pedagogy, combined with HM Education Video Cases, provide an ideal way to help future teachers prepare for real life in the classroom.
