Sample Books on Reading and Literacy

The author "draws on years of research and countless interactions with students and teachers to present a framework of instructional decision making centered on the readers we work with, the books we share with them, and the instructional objectives we guide them toward." The book includes "50 quick reference Decision Guides for practical planning and responding in three instructional areas: Word Solving, Fluency and Expression, and Comprehension."

Assessment for Reading Instruction

The book "explains how to use both formal and informal assessments to evaluate students' strengths and needs in all components of reading." The work "includes 30 reproducible tools, plus an additional multipage assessment in an online-only appendix."

Teaching Readers (Not Reading)

"Reading instruction is too often grounded in a narrowly defined "science of reading" that focuses exclusively on cognitive skills and strategies. Yet cognition is just one aspect of reading development. This book guides K-8 educators to understand and address other scientifically supported factors that influence each student's literacy learning, including metacognition, motivation and engagement, social-emotional learning, self-efficacy, and more."
