Teaching reading is a complex task without a simple formula for developing quality instruction. The authors present a deep and thoughtful conversation about what is meant by effective reading instruction for all students. Rather than build on or alter existing models, this book considers how educators and policymakers might think about rebuilding and reconceptualizing reading education, perhaps from the ground up.

The unique focus of this text integrates constructivist learning, diversity, and instruction-based assessment, and helps translate principles into practice. Unlike any other text on the market, this text integrates a constructivist/emergent literacy perspective with science-based instructional practices that have proved successful in supporting children's reading, writing, and speaking development. This Third Edition begins with a brief overview of the recent key national policies and initiatives that have had a significant impact on the teaching of reading and writing at the preschool and elementary levels. Respected authors Jim Christie, Billie Enz, and Carol Vukelich describe a continuum of approaches to reading instruction, ranging from emergent literacy to Science-Based Reading Research. Unique to this text is the authors' vision of a blended' approach to teaching literacy that includes the best elements of diverging views and ends with a set of principles that guide the authors' view of the effective teaching of literacy in preschool and elementary classrooms. development and teaching of both oral and written language from preschool through the elementary grades. At the preschool and kindergarten levels, the authors advocate a combination of meaningful engagements with print and age-appropriate instruction on core literacy skills. At the elementary grade level, the authors support a balanced approach to reading instruction that focuses on both decoding and comprehension. The writing workshop is the authors' preferred mode of elementary-grade writing instruction. The text also has extensive coverage of working with children from diverse background, family literacy, and assessment strategies that can be used to inform instruction. The Third Edition has a strong emphasis on scientifically-based reading research (SBRR) throughout, blending SBRR with other perspectives to create a 'value added' approach to language and literacy teaching and learning.
