A new edition of one of the most respected and well-known texts in the field!
A “must-have” resource for any teacher’s library—and the perfect text for a variety of reading assessment courses—this book presents an interactive perspective on reading and writing ability and disability, with an emphasis on understanding and addressing learners’ difficulties in relation to the instructional context.
Here readers get an extensive, in-depth, and up-to-date treatment of current research and best practices in reading assessment, diagnosis, and remediation. While retaining the focus of the previous edition on careful and extensive discussion of language acquisition, vocabulary development, and early literacy; greater attention to English language learners; attention to adolescent literacy; and information about the RTI process, this new edition includes some dramatic changes, most notably :
Also included are a new Case Study, new case examples for diagnostic teaching and a new diagnostic model, clear discussion of assessment at the district and classroom levels, an enhanced discussion of progress monitoring, and coverage of the Common Core State Standards.About the Author:
