About the Author:

Rollanda E. O'Connor, PhD, is Professor and Eady/Hendrick Endowed Chair in Learning Disabilities in the Graduate School of Education at the University of California, Riverside. She taught reading in special and general education classrooms for many years. Dr. O'Connor has conducted numerous reading intervention studies in general and special education settings, examined procedures to predict the students most likely to develop reading disabilities, and followed the reading progress of students who have received early intervention. Her longitudinal studies of intervention and assessment led to the development of Ladders to Literacy, a collection of phonological and print awareness activities and scaffolding suggestions for children at risk for reading problems, and the Handbook of Reading Interventions,which describes evidence-based interventions for struggling readers in grades PreK–12. Her current research includes exploring the effects of early, continuous intervention across the first 4 years of reading development and developing research-based interventions for students with reading difficulties in the intermediate and middle school grades.

Review:

"A valuable resource for any teacher whose responsibilities include reading instruction. Focusing on teaching students with reading difficulties, the book weaves many practical teaching ideas and strategies into the knowledge base derived from research. A new chapter on teaching morphology is a welcome addition, particularly in the context of the Common Core State Standards, which emphasize close reading of increasingly complex texts. This book provides teachers with many ideas that can be readily implemented."--Diane Haager, PhD, Division of Special Education and Counseling, California State University, Los Angeles

"Yet again, O'Connor has shown why she is a leader in reading education. This second edition demonstrates O'Connor's special strength in conveying practical procedures that are true to the evidence about effective reading instruction. Chapter after chapter, the book explains the importance of teaching a component decoding skill (for example, blending, decoding multisyllabic words), translates the research about it, and provides sequenced illustrations of targeted lessons. What more could a teacher want? Because it is so conceptually well integrated and grounded in applied research, this book can serve as a guide for students, classroom teachers, and curriculum developers."--John Wills Lloyd, PhD, Curry School of Education, University of Virginia  "Essential reading for teachers and teacher educators. The tone is reader-friendly, but the content is substantial. This book addresses all aspects of learning to read words, with discussions of oral language, phonemic awareness, decoding, fluency, struggling secondary students, and English language learners. Each chapter provides extensive research and evidence-based strategies and activities with examples. O’Connor has managed to demystify the process of teaching word recognition to students with reading difficulties."--Yvonne N. Bui, PhD, Department of Special Education, San Francisco State University

"An exceptionally well-written book aimed at elementary practitioners....Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and practitioners." (on the first edition) (Choice 2007-07-01)
