Reviewers Rave

“The assessment information is ordered in an appropriate meaningful way. I especially like the fact that students can go to the website and download an IRI."  –Dr. Priscilla Leggett, Fayetteville State University

 

“I like how assessment is embedded with text topics as well as with teaching strategies favoring developing readers and writers. [The] text goes into greater detail about the causes of reading problems and addresses the nature versus nurture question better than I have seen in other texts.  It does have very good coverage of assessment and teaching strategies for the reading process.”  –Terrence V. Stange, Marshall University
