This book offers readers a plethora of activities for teaching the five components of a good reading program: phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension. Unlike other books that describe a series of activities without any clear point, each chapter in this book explains how activities contribute to fluent reading. New and practicing teachers will find an overview of what each component looks like from a classroom perspective with suggestions for informal assessment. Also included are best practices for teaching each of the five components, best practices for teaching English language learners, and best practices for working with struggling readers. The book is full of citations from professional literature, which makes it appropriate for teachers who are expected to make instructional choices based on research evidence. FEATURES:

One of the main reasons that I used Fox's text was because activities are grounded within the necessary literacy theory for preservice teachers and teachers to make professional decisions regarding their students' literacy learning.
Dr. Merry Boggs, Tarleton State University
(referring to ch. 8): These are excellent, clear-cut examples of what to do. So often, teachers are not well-schooled in these methods. Characteristics of each stage help teachers to observe informally and adjust their instruction. [Chapter 5] is a real gem...Structural analysis can be a complex and dry subject to teach...The author presents a lot of info in a systematic format and supports each area of the concept with tables and clear examples. I will use this in my own practice.
Dr. Jane F. Rudden, Millersville University of Pennsylvania
The author begins the chapter  very well with the description of the four levels of fluency and guidelines for developing reading fluency. I believe that this is a great way of bringing all the information in this text together. It provides the reader with an understanding of why we teach and model these skills and strategies in an elementary classroom.
Dr. Ann A. Wolf, Gonzaga University
