In this book, you'll cover the major theories and application strategies of the reading process, and learn how to organize for literary instruction in your classroom. As you learn to recognize and draw upon the multiple literacies that children bring to the classroom, you will: Become a skilled problem-solver as you work through real-world examples and study the classroom experiences of others. Discover how to dig deeper into literacy instruction and decide on what actions to take. Explore ways to drive and teach literacy with such tools as children's toys and familiar characters.
