Book Description

The Sixth Edition of this comprehensive resource helps future and practicing teachers recognize and assess literacy problems, while providing practical, effective intervention strategies to help every student succeed. DeVries thoroughly explores all major components of literacy, offering an overview of pertinent research, suggested methods and tools for diagnosis and assessment, intervention strategies and activities, and technology applications to increase students' skills.

Substantively updated to reflect the needs of teachers in increasingly diverse classrooms, the Sixth Edition addresses scaffolding for English language learners and the importance of using technology and online resources. It presents appropriate instructional strategies and tailored teaching ideas to help both teachers and their students. The valuable appendices feature assessment tools, instructions, and visuals for creating and implementing the book's more than 150 instructional strategies and activities, and other resources.
