Readings in Reading Instruction: Its History, Theory, and Development

One Reviewer Sums It Up!

“I see its uniqueness as a primary strength of this text. I am not aware of other texts that present research in the field of literacy in a chronological manner. This will be a great resource for teachers long after they have finished taking a course. The option to teach a course from an historical perspective that this text provides is a related strength.”
April Whatley, University of New Orleans

This brief, thought-provoking text evaluates historical perspectives in reading to show how current reading practices have developed over time, and provides an understanding of the development of significant issues in the field of literacy education.

This stimulating new collection gathers the best thinking on every aspect of reading, from assessment and phonics to technology and developing a love of reading. Classic works from giants like Horace Mann are united here with recent pieces from the field's most promising rising scholars, offering a fresh treatment of essential questions and challenges. Richard Robinson believes that a child-centered approach to reading instruction is both the most effective and the most humane. This commitment invigorates the collection, resulting in a volume that expresses and provokes the most creative possible thinking.

As a core text or as a supplementary reader, this new compilation will motivate and enlighten teachers of reading at any level!
