From the Inside Flap:

It is generally accepted that reading with comprehension is key to success in all academic domains. This means that every teacher must be able to help students deepen their reading and writing skills. What is the core knowledge base teachers need for this task? Knowledge to Support the Teaching of Reading offers a definitive guide to reading and literacy preparation in teacher education and professional development.

Despite the current obsession with improving national educational standards for our children, an alarming number of teachers lack grounding in the fundamentals of theory and practice of reading and literacy. This book is a part of a major initiative of the National Academy of Education's Committee on Teacher Education, whose members have been charged with the task of creating a core knowledge base for teacher education. A subcommittee of experts on language and literacy developed Knowledge to Support the Teaching of Reading to delineate the essential knowledge about the development, acquisition, and teaching of language and literacy that all teachers need.

This important book links evidence about student accomplishments and effective instructional practices to teacher knowledge and teacher preparation. The editors include information for meeting the more challenging situations teachers may encounter when teaching reading. Written for teacher educators, the book defines teacher preparation as a developmental process that evolves from recurring cycles of learning, enactment, assessment, and reflection.
