With its inclusive view of literacy, Creating Literacy Instruction for All Studentsemphasizes methods that have been validated by research and practice, while delivering the basics of all major aspects of reading and writing. The Fifth Edition of this best-selling book continues to be a comprehensive, practical text that provides its readers with step-by-step guidance for teaching reading and writing. Written by distinguished author Tom Gunning, this text features sample lessons for virtually every major literacy skill/strategy and offers numerous reinforcement suggestions and generous listings of materials. With its careful balance between the theory and the practice, readers are always given the theories behind the methods, encouraging them to choose, adapt, and construct their own approaches as they create a balanced program of literacy instruction. Special emphasis has been given to adapting instruction for English language learners, struggling readers and writers, and special needs students throughout the book. Unlike comparable texts, the new edition stresses effective steps for closing the gap between achieving and struggling readers as mandated by the No Child Left Behind legislation and Reading First.
