Giving teachers the confidence they need to teach reading in today's classrooms, Diane Nettles takes students on a journey of understanding reading as a social endeavor (the whole), of learning to teach the skills children need to be successful readers, and finally, of motivating children to read a lot--the "heart" of learning to read. In this no-nonsense textbook, preservice teachers are reflective as they learn scientifically-based strategies for teaching the "whole," the "parts," and the "heart" of literacy.

 

The interactive approach of Literacy Instruction in Today's Classrooms:  The Whole, the Parts, and the Heart uses interesting and engaging in-class examples and vignettes to motivate teachers to learn reading theory and its application in the classroom. Readers come away with a thorough understanding of comprehensive literacy instruction that is the most current in the field and of the reality of learning to read.

What are professors saying about Comprehensive Literacy Instruction in Today's Classrooms?
The main strength of the material. . .is the model of instruction provided, specifically the addition of ‘the heart’ component. Texts typically address the whole and parts components addressing the heart issues provides a more comprehensive model.
Maureen Kincaid, North Central College

The strengths of this text include the breadth and depth of content and illustrations/examples. Another strength is the interactive nature of involving the reader at the beginning of each chapter with an exercise that gets them into the material. The examples and ready to use instructional aids makes this a valuable text. The many suggestions for using specific children’s literature with the instructional activities are extremely helpful for the pre-service and novice teacher.
Dennis Kear, Wichita State University
