Unique to this emergent literacy text is the clear delivery of why and how reading teachers do what they need to do to ensure that every child learns to read and write in thecritical primary grades. Each chapter inReaders and Writers in Primary Grades: A Balanced and Integrated Approach begins with brief but concrete explanations of the theory behind instruction and then thoroughy presents processes and procedures for integrating reading and writing it into daily classroom practice. A model of an integrated framework displayed at the opening of each chapter lays out for readers where reading components fit in a comprehensive reading program. Final chapters illustrate how to use three different instructional approaches--literature based whole/small group, basal reading/language arts program, and content area unit studies--for integrating reading and writing instruction for grades K-4.
