This K-8 methods book shows how to implement a balanced classroom literacy program that is child-centered and print rich with reading at the core.

Helping Children Learn to Read presents, in a clear, readable style, the current theories and techniques for creating a literacy program in elementary grades. There is strong coverage of the role of the basal reader and how to modify its use; the whole language perspective and an integrated language arts curriculum; a teaching-strategies orientation to decoding, vocabulary, comprehension, studying, and writing; plus extensive discussion of emergent literacy, multicultural literature, metacognition, and holistic assessment.

For anyone interested in elementary reading methods.
