The third edition of this title provides current research along with instructional implications that reflect the rapidly evolving professional context in which the research is used.

The 17 chapters focus on research related to early reading instruction, phonemic awareness, comprehension, and many other topics. Each chapter concludes with "Questions for Discussion" to encourage reflection on the topics discussed.… (more)
