Teaching Children to Read is a research-based, practical, comprehensive guide to teaching literacy in K to 8 classrooms. In an era of rigorous standards, this text provides the essential information and strategies you need to help your students develop into capable and confident readers.

The 9th Edition is based on science of reading (SOR) research to plan and deliver up-to-date, effective teaching and learning experiences. SOR evidence is presented within a consistent framework of the authors' 5 pillars of effective reading instruction: teacher knowledge; classroom assessment; evidence-based teaching strategies; differentiating instruction; and family and community connections. New, authentic classroom examples show you how the evidence-based strategies discussed in the text are used in practice.
