The Eighth Edition of this authoritative, best-selling resource from distinguished author Tom Gunning gives aspiring and practicing teachers the help they need to become highly effective teachers-so that their students become proficient readers and writers well on their way to preparing for college and careers. Drawing on landmark research that focuses on highly effective practices, such as setting goals, monitoring progress, and teaching strategies, Gunning's Teaching Literacy Strategies for All Studentsis packed with step-by-step guidance for teaching reading and writing, including 30 sample lessons that cover virtually every major literacy skill and strategy, incorporating the key elements of effective assessment and instruction. The book emphasizes how to adapt instruction for struggling readers and writers, English language learners, and special needs students; stresses effective steps teachers can use to implement Response to Intervention; and familiarizes teachers with the reading and writing requirements stemming from the widely-adopted Common Core State Standards.
