A compendium of strategies, this book affords the reader an active role in examining and evaluating instructional techniques. The 14 units of the book describe 87 strategies and practices, including guided reading, the directed reading activity, book clubs, Reading Recovery, word study, patterned language approach, process drama, author's chair, literature circles, K-W-L, word maps, graphic organizers, PORPE, echo reading, and performance assessment.
