Product Description

Pre-service and in-service teachers alike will find valuable help for understanding and using research-based techniques to teach literacy skills to individuals and small groups, and to enable students to learn specific literacy competencies.

This book provides practical guidelines for using 50 strategies using step-by-step instruction before, during, and after each phase of a literacy lesson. Based on research and best practices, the guide couples the 50 strategies with authentic children's literature as examples. An invaluable tool for lesson planning and preparing teachers to develop specific literacy competencies in learners, it provides an instructional framework for literacy lessons that views students as active participants in the construction of meaning. This book includes word recognition strategies, vocabulary strategies, comprehension strategies, and writing strategies.
