Description

The latest from well-known author and literacy expert Dr. Richard Allington is intended as the first step in preparing future teachers to provide early adolescents with high-quality literacy instruction.

Dr. Allington stresses that through expanding the volume of high-success reading that students experience each day, as well as through the wide variety of additional classroom strategies and methodologies included in the text, middle school students can achieve a working literacy proficiency.
