Summary

This best-selling guide to diagnosing and improving reading is based on the authors' premise that when assessment and instruction are centric to a reading program, children's reading improvement can occur. In "Reading Diagnosis and Improvement: Assessment and Instruction, 6/e," well respected authors Dorothy Rubin, Michael Opitz, and James Erekson set the stage for effective reading diagnosis and improvement, describe various assessment measures teachers can use to assess and diagnose students' reading performance, and present reading content and instruction. It's an ideal blend of theory and practice, including many practical applications of the material covered; suggestions for constructing an informal reading inventory; and a complete, ready to use informal reading inventory.
