This volume - penned by some of the best-known experts in the field - can familiarize any educator, from novice to expert, with the complex nature of teaching reading. It also can provide readers a starting point for examining particular topics in depth. The contributors review landmark research from the middle of the 20th century through today, highlighting political and social pressures that have influenced research, policy, and classroom practice. Eleven chapters explore the historical underpinnings of the reading process, phonics, family literacy, guided reading, comprehension, fluency, content area reading, children's literature, remedial and clinical reading, vocabulary and spelling, and teacher education and professional development. To provide readers with a jump-off point for further study, each chapter presents questions for future research as well as Essential Readings resource lists. The author invites you into a deep understanding of each topic. You will gain perspective, ground your own work, and come to appreciate the rich, varied interpretations of these areas of reading.
