Every Child a Reader. Applying Reading Research in the Classroom.
Hiebert, Elfrieda H.; Pearson, P. David; Taylor, Barbara M.; Richardson, Virginia; Paris, Scott G.
Extensive research over the past 30 years has established the classroom and home experiences that support independent reading by the end of third grade. This set of eight six-page pamphlets draws on this research in providing teachers with practical suggestions on improving children's reading achievement. It includes practices easily incorporated in any classroom, along with references to help teachers learn more. Along with a comprehensive Overview, eight topic areas that are fundamental to children's reading success are covered: (1) Oral Language and Reading; (2) Concepts of Print, Letter Naming, and Phonemic Awareness; (3) Phonics and Word Recognition Accuracy; (4) High-Frequency Words and Fluency; (5) Strategic Comprehension; (6) Writing and Reading; (7) Engagement and Interest in Reading; and (8) School-Wide Reading Programs.
