Catching Readers Before They Fall-Supporting Readers Who Struggle,k-4
byPat Johnson and Katie Keier Stenhouse 2010
The authors have done a terrific job of explaining what all teachers should know about teaching reading in a classroom teacher friendly manner. They really get to the heart of the matter with solid ,current research from many well regarded people including Allington ,Debbie Miller, Marie Clay, Ellin Keene and the two sisters (among so many others)
I love it because it talks about assessment and the zone of proximal development. It makes everything to clear and fits perfectly with the PWIM-an instructional strategy I wholeheartedly believe in.
