Here's the ideal resource for anyone interested in reading research: a concise yet comprehensive review of a half-century of research, trends, and issues that have shaped current classroom practices.Presented in a reader-friendly style, this volume explores the historical underpinnings of important topics such as phonics, family literacy, fluency, guided reading, children's literature, vocabulary and spelling, comprehension, teacher education, content area reading, remedial and clinical reading, and the reading process.Some of the top names in each of these disciplines share their insights and perspectives by reviewing landmark studies and examining the major political and social pressures that have influenced policy and practice over the years."Essential Readings" lists will help you focus on "must reads" within each topic, and extensive reference lists offer a more comprehensive review of the important literature in each topic area.
