A new edition of the market-leading book that gives classroom teachers up-to-date coverage on reading processes, their assessment, and their corrective instruction–with thorough treatments of reading and writing at every stage of development.

Featuring classroom-based, teacher-driven approaches to effective reading assessment and remediation, the new edition of this market-leading book provides up-to-date coverage of reading processes, their assessment, and their corrective instruction. The highly popular authors present thorough treatments of reading and writing at every stage of development. Assessments are presented in their entirety for emergent literacy including concepts about print and the concept of word, and many tests of phonological awareness, developmental spelling, word recognition, fluency, and phonics knowledge.

Among the topics covered are a detailed treatment of Informal Reading Inventories (with examples from the authors’ Developmental Literacy Inventory); Lexiles and guided reading levels; running records; developmental spelling stages; emergent literacy assessments including concepts about print, the concept of word, and phonological awareness; reading and spelling-based tests of phonics knowledge; assessing and teaching students with limited English proficiency; and practical strategies for adapting instruction for special needs students in inclusive classrooms. The Eighth Edition has new chapters on Response to Intervention and on the teaching of culturally and linguistically different students. This edition is organized by developmental levels, with explanations of reading issues at each level, approaches to assessment, and teaching methods delivered at the point of need.
