Incorporate a multi-tiered approach to literacy instruction and increase your students strategic thinking in reading and writing!

Literacy experts, Robin Wisniewski, Nancy Padak, and Timothy Rasinski, explore the major components essential to creating an effective literacy program that supports all students. The authors present teachers with friendly tips and research-based strategies for implementing a Response to Intervention framework in their own schools and provide guidance on how to make instructional decisions for students who have fallen behind in reading. In particular, the authors focus on identifying effective elements of instruction and offer suggestions for instructional modifications in the classroom.  

The series, Evidence-Based Instruction in Reading is a professional development program designed to help teachers meet the literacy instruction guidelines as identified by the National Reading Panel (2000). Each of the books in the series focuses on one key component: learners with special needs, phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension and offers recommendations for incorporating appropriate reading materials, fostering productive home-school connections, and promoting a desire for students to learn to read and write throughout the five part series. Making this the perfect professional development resource for teachers in the elementary classroom!
