From the Back Cover:

Michael Opitz has joined Dorothy Rubin in revising Diagnosis and Correction in Reading Instruction!

 

A subtle but important change has been made to the title of the Fifth Edition to include the word “improvement” to reflect a more contemporary view of this topic. Thus, this popular introductory text – Diagnosis and Improvement in Reading Instruction,  Fifth Edition –  is now revised and updated based on the latest assessments and research.

 

Among the many substantial revisions, increased coverage on hot topics such as phonological awareness, reading fluency, and English Language Learners has been included to expose teachers to these critical terms.
