Giving teachers the confidence they need to teach reading in today's classrooms, Diane Nettles takes students on a journey of understanding reading as a social endeavor (the whole), of learning to teach the skills children need to be successful readers, and finally, of motivating children to read a lot—the "heart" of learning to read. In this no-nonsense textbook, preservice teachers are reflective as they learn scientifically-based strategies for teaching the "whole," the "parts," and the "heart" of literacy.

The interactive approach of Literacy Instruction in Today's Classrooms: The Whole, the Parts, and the Heart uses interesting and engaging in-class examples and vignettes to motivate teachers to learn reading theory and its application in the classroom. Readers come away with a thorough understanding of comprehensive literacy instruction that is the most current in the field and of the reality of learning to read.
