New or Used: 4 copies from $93.30
Teaching Children with Reading Difficulties is written chiefly for pre-service and practicing primary school teachers who are in the front lines of helping young children acquire the skills of reading. The book presents the results of decades of reading research in an accessible manner, and translates the results of this research into practical guidelines and strategies for successful reading instruction. It addresses the prerequisite skills of 'learning to read' (the development of essential phonological skills, letter-sound knowledge, word-recognition skills and vocabulary development) in addition to strategies that will help children develop the fluency and comprehension skills that contribute to 'reading to learn'.
