Becoming a Reader, Third Edition, clearly presents the literacy process from a developmental perspective, highlighting the five stages of the literacy growth process: emergent reading, initial reading, transitional reading, basic literacy, and refinement. Unlike other texts that are organized topically, this text addresses specific topics like word identification and comprehension within the larger framework of literacy developmentjust in time for the new emphasis placed on assessing students based on their developmental stage as dictated by local, state and national standards. Long awaited, this is a practical how to book that represents a synthesis of many points of view on how to assess the reading needs of children and to address them with highly effective, teacher-tested strategies. Students will quickly understand how all the stages are related and flow together in a coherent way.
