9780132963503: The Essentials of Teaching Children to Read: The Teacher Makes the Difference (3rd Edition)

The Essentials of Teaching Children to Read: The Teacher Makes the Difference, Third Edition,by Reutzel and Cooter is the ideal hands-on personal guide for pre- and in-service K–8 teachers who want to make a critical difference in ensuring effective reading instruction for all students. It shows educators how, by thinking deeply about their teaching decisions, they can come to understand and meet the literacy needs of every student. The authors present seven pillars of effective reading instruction—Teacher Knowledge, Classroom Assessment, Evidence-Based Teaching Practices, Response to Intervention (RTI), Motivation and Engagement, Technology and New Literacies, and Family and Community Connections—that provide a logical and consistent structure for closely examining the essential elements that well-prepared literacy teachers know, understand, and are able to implement in the classroom.

From the Back Cover:

 

Here’s practical, easy-to-access information teachers need to become master literacy teachers—while ensuring that they meet the literacy needs of each and every student in the classroom. In keeping with the premise that it is the teacher who makes the difference in effective reading instruction, this book helps educators become capable literacy teachers by showing them how to think deeply about their teaching decisions in order to understand and best meet their students’ literacy needs.

 

In this new edition the authors have updated their previous five pillars of effective reading instruction—Teacher Knowledge, Classroom Assessment, Evidence-Based Teaching Practices, Response to Intervention (RTI), and Family and Community Connections—and add two new pillars to this edition: Motivation and Engagement and Technology and New Literacies. The seven pillars provide a logical and consistent structure for closely examining the essential elements that well prepared literacy teachers know, understand, and are able to implement in classrooms. Teachers are encouraged to use the seven pillars to ground their thinking about future teaching in order to successfully develop and perform their vital roles in helping all children become successful readers and writers.

 

Using the hands-on advice presented in this new edition, pre- and in-service teachers see clearly how to:

 

  • Encourage young children to increase their speaking vocabularies
  • Motivate students to engage in various reading skills, strategies, and concepts
  • Present exceptionally clear phonics instruction lessons that help reach even the most difficult to teach students
  • Access the newest and best instructional strategies for boosting students’ reading comprehension through effective instruction
  • Become acquainted with, and use, evidence-based reading instructional programs that have proved effective with a variety of student populations
  • Work with and benefit from the knowledge base and experience of reading coaches
  • Become more effective and clear in their teaching through new lesson examples of explicit strategy and concept instruction
  • Use specific strategies to help students get motivated to learn to read and to remain engaged in the process throughout the year and beyond
  • Address the needs of today’s most rapidly growing student sector— English Learners—and use methods for effective assessment and instruction.
  • Keep pace with today’s technology and new literacies students are using and use those technologies effectively in the classroom to encourage literacy
  • Assess and teach aspects of reading according to Response to Intervention (RTI) guidelines for Tier 1 and Tier 2 instruction
