From the Publisher:

An exciting new edition of the only text on the market to concentrate, specifically, on transition approaches to teaching reading! While offering extensive coverage of all reading teaching methods, this text's main objective is showing future teachers how "balanced literacy" programs can be developed to draw upon the most important and successful ideas from both whole language and traditional "direct instruction" philosophies. Readers learn how to make gradual transitions from traditional to language teaching, in ways that have been proven through research. Coverage begins with theoretical and instructional models, and proceeds to discussion of such fundamental skills as identifying words in print and acquiring vocabulary. Subsequent chapters detail techniques for making the transition from basal readers to books, and for designing environments that encourage learning and promote literacy. Finally, it discusses such issues as holistic assessment of reading and writing, and applying transition ideas in content areas.
