Teaching Reading and Writing: The Developmental Approach is a comprehensive yet accessible guide to the tools and knowledge pre-service and experienced teachers need to teach literacy in a developmentally-responsive and integrated way—while meeting the diverse needs of students in today’s classrooms. Using a conversational tone to present a wealth of critical content, the book helps readers connect theory to practice through vignettes and sample lessons from real classrooms; authentic student work samples; ideas for using and integrating print-based and digital texts across the curriculum; and tools for organizing and managing a comprehensive, developmentally-responsive literacy program.
