by Robert B. Ruddell and Norman J. Unrau
|Grades||K – 12|
This landmark book has helped countless educators, graduate students, and researchers shape curriculum and stay informed about the latest developments in literacy research and instruction.
Now in its fifth edition, the book continues a tradition of exemplary scholarship and remains a resource for the most innovative thinking in the field. Although some pieces from past editions have been retained, this edition highlights more recent works and reflects new findings and promising directions in the field. More than two-thirds of the 56 articles are new to this edition. Questions for reflection accompany each section to prompt discussion and deeper thinking about theory, research, and instruction.
Purchase the book alone, or with a supplementary CD that provides an additional 70 classic and recent research pieces to enrich your understanding.
