For courses in Direct Reading Instruction, Remedial Reading, and Reading for Special Education Students.

Thoroughly integrating the latest guidelines from the National Reading Panel, this is a practical guide to teaching reading via the direct instruction reading approach, a proven program that's especially powerful with the most vulnerable learners - those at-risk because of poverty, disability/limited English. Rather than simply list method after method, these nationally known and respected authors provide a specific repertoire of carefully sequenced, highly prescriptive procedures for teaching decoding, comprehension, content reading, and study skills. For each skill to be taught, they recommend strategies, discuss optimal timing, offer examples, and explain how to correct errors. In addition, they thoughtfully examine the relationships among different reading skills.
