Written by one of the most dynamic author teams in the field of Reading and Literacy, the Fourth Edition of All Children Read continues to offer K-8 teachers the best practices for developing reading and writing in all students.
The new edition integrates Common Core State Standards, deepens its exploration of Response to Intervention (RTI), looks more deeply at comprehension of informational text, and emphasizes the teaching of English Language Learners. Central to, and woven throughout, this text are the six overriding themes—the struggling reader; family/community literacy; new literacies; writing and reading connections; developmental, cultural, and linguistic diversity; and phonics/phonological awareness.
