Reading Development and Difficulties is a comprehensive and balanced introduction to the development of the two core aspects of reading: good word reading skills and the ability to extract the overall meaning of a text. Unique in its balanced coverage of both word reading and reading comprehension development, this book is an essential resource for undergraduates studying literacy acquisition. Offers wide coverage of the subject and discusses both typical development and the development of difficulties in reading. Accessibly written for students and professionals with no previous background in reading development or reading difficulties.

Imagine a professional learning community where you could sit in as... Ellin Keene and Debbie Miller swap best practices, Stephanie Harvey and Harvey "Smokey" Daniels compare instruction across the grades, Anne Goudvis and Tanny McGregor share ways to infuse comprehension into every subject area, Cris Tovani and Nancy Commins apply the strategies to help struggling readers, English learners, and special-needs students. With this book you can. It's an energetic, personal conversation on what great comprehension instructions looks like, what an amazing range of applications it has for all students, and what we can do better. And like any exciting conversation, the authors point out their favorite parts of one another's chapters-highlighting discussion topics for teacher study groups along the way.
The world we are preparing our students to succeed in is one bound together by words and phrases. Our students learn their literature, history, math, science, or art via a firm foundation of strong reading skills. When we teach students to read with precision, rigor, and insight, we are truly handing over the key to the kingdom. Of all the subjects we teach reading is first among equals. Grounded in advice from effective classrooms nationwide, enhanced with more than 40 video clips, Reading Reconsidered takes you into the trenches with actionable guidance from real-life educators and instructional champions. The authors address the anxiety-inducing world of Common Core State Standards, distilling from those standards four key ideas that help hone teaching practices both generally and in preparation for assessments. This 'Core of the Core' comprises the first half of the book and instructs educators on how to teach students to: read harder texts, 'closely read' texts rigorously and intentionally, read nonfiction more effectively, and write more effectively in direct response to texts.
In the second edition of "Reading with Meaning", Debbie Miller shares her new thinking about comprehension strategy instruction, the gradual release of responsibility instructional model, and planning for student engagement and independence. It has been ten years since the first edition, in which Debbie chronicled a year in her own classroom. "Reading with Meaning", Second Edition supports that work and expands her vision of strategy instruction and intentional teaching and learning. Debbie believes that every child deserves at least a full year of growth during each classroom year and offers planning documents with matching assessments to ensure that no child falls through the cracks. The second edition also provides new book recommendations that will engage and delight students, and current picture books for reading aloud and strategy instruction. This new edition reflects Debbie's professional experiences and judgement, her work in classrooms and collaboration with colleagues, and the current research in the field, showcasing her newest, best thinking.

Reading is a highly complex skill that is prerequisite to success in many societies in which a great deal of information is communicated in written form. Since the 1970s, much has been learned about the reading process from research by cognitive psychologists. This book summarizes that important work and puts it into a coherent framework. The book’s central theme is how readers go about extracting information from the printed page and comprehending the text. Like its predecessor, this thoroughly updated 2nd Edition encompasses all aspects of the psychology of reading with chapters on writing systems, word recognition, the work of the eyes during reading, inner speech, sentence processing, discourse processing, learning to read, dyslexia, individual differences and speed reading.
This is one of the books in the Advanced level series of Macmillan’s extensive Improve your Skills range, which helps students develop their skills for a number of international exams. The books can be used for self-study or with a class, and the units focus on developing particular skills, which are then related to an exam practice exercise. Mastery of the skill in the first part of the unit helps a long way towards accomplishing the final task. In the course of its 12 units, Reading for Advanced teaches reading for gist, distinguishing main ideas from supporting details, understanding attitude and opinion, understanding implication and deducing the meaning of unfamiliar words, together with a host of other important reading skills that most teachers would acknowledge that their students need to acquire - sometimes without having a very firm grasp of how that acquisition can best be accomplished. By breaking the learning of each skill down into small manageable chunks and enabling the students to practise on small discrete sections of text first, the book both demonstrates the finer points of how the language works and prepares the students well for the greater challenge of doing the exam practice task which ends each chapter. These tasks have been carefully chosen to provide an opportunity for the target skill to be used, demonstrating clearly how acquisition of that skill has an immediate pay-off in enhancing the student’s ability to answer the exam question correctly. The answer key provides full explanations as to why the answers are correct, something that is particularly useful with gapped-text exercises, where even native speakers often struggle to decide which missing paragraph goes where - and why. At the same time as teaching the various reading skills, this book also exposes the students to vocabulary on a range of topics which they are likely to encounter in the exam. There are also Skills tip boxes, giving useful information about the exam and ideas and strategies for approaching the exam reading tasks.

Originating in a recent CIERA conference held at the University of Michigan, this book brings together the nation's most distinguished researchers to examine how readers understand text and how comprehension is assessed. The first part provides both national and historical contexts for the study of reading comprehension. The second part examines how vocabulary, motivation, and expertise influence comprehension, and it includes analyses of the developmental course and correlates of comprehension. Chapters in the third part consider how schools focus on comprehension for instruction and assessment. The fourth part includes chapters on large-scale assessment that analyze how test formats and psychometric characteristics influence measures of reading comprehension. At the end of each part is a commentary--written by an expert-that reviews the chapters, critiques the main points, and synthesizes critical issues.
"Genre Connections" makes learning achievable, accessible, and incremental for all readers - including struggling readers. Tannyĺs lessons use everyday objects, works of art, music, and her much-loved anchor charts to help readers get acquainted with seven commonly taught genres and to discover what makes them unique. Her launching sequences gradually release responsibility for learning about text types, and they can be adapted for any genre. They help readers weave creative, sensory threads into a tapestry of understanding by taking them from a fun introductory object lesson to an immersive experience.
It is never too early to start comprehension instruction. In fact, reading begins with meaning making. Andie Cunningham and Ruth Shagoury designed a reading program for five- and six-year-olds based on this premise. Most of the students in Andie's Portland, Oregon, kindergarten class have little or no alphabet knowledge when they enter the classroom in the fall. English is a second-or third-language for many of the children in this low-income neighborhood. Through research-based principles, carefully structured routines, and innovative activities, even the youngest learners can develop comprehension skills from their first days in school. The children in Starting with Comprehension are grappling with school culture for the first time and learning to work with classmates who speak a variety of different languages. These emergent readers learn to present their understanding of what they read through writing, talk, movement, and art. Kindergartners and preschoolers are different from readers who know how to decode texts. Andie and Ruth show how comprehension skills can be nurtured and strengthened even before decoding begins. In this classroom, meaning making becomes part of community building as children link reading, thinking, and communicating.
The book has been inspired by the need to investigate the process of reading comprehension in native and additional languages, as well as the changes in word recognition as developed by primary Polish learners of English when exposed to a good quality balanced reading instruction. The recommendations for early reading instruction offered by the current English language methodology guidelines in Poland for grades 1-3 do not refer clearly to an approach which is constructed on a balanced combination of code-and meaning-based instruction [from introduction].
