Ideal for Professional Development

A new edition will be published October 2014.
“Now in its fourth edition, Best Practices in Literacy Instruction just keeps getting better! This comprehensive volume offers up-to-date, evidence-based information on virtually everything a teacher needs to know about literacy instruction. Clearly written, with end-of-chapter activities to promote deeper understanding, this book is indispensable for preservice and master’s courses in literacy programs and for school professional development efforts.”

—Mariam Jean Dreher, PhD, Department of Curriculum and Instruction, University of Maryland, College Park

“This fourth edition continues the tradition of excellence established in prior editions. From motivation to the pillars of literacy, assessment, and new literacies, every significant aspect of teaching reading is fully examined. This is an excellent, up-to-the-minute, evidence-based reference that provides innovative insights into essential literacy topics. Classroom teachers, reading specialists, curriculum directors, and teacher educators will benefit from this wealth of knowledge.”

—Maureen McLaughlin, EdD, Department of Reading, East Stroudsburg University of Pennsylvania

“Beginning with the superb introductory chapters, this book is filled with theory- and research-based discussions of critical issues and instructional practices in literacy education. The contributors develop a deeper understanding of literacy in their chapters while embedding a strong emphasis on technology. I loved reading this fourth edition. It flourishes with new ideas, new topics, and an abundance of practical teaching ideas and classroom examples.”

—Barbara J. Walker, EdD, School of Teaching and Curriculum Leadership, Oklahoma State University
