Written by one of the most dynamic author teams in the field of Reading and Literacy, All Children Read offers future K-8 teachers the best practices for nurturing emergent literacy, teaching early literacy concepts, and developing reading and writing in all students--those of varying reading levels and abilities, as well as those who are English language learners. Six overriding themes are central to the text: the troubled reader, family/community literacy, technology, writing and reading, language diversity, and phonics/phonetic awareness. These themes are interwoven throughout, making this new text the most contemporary and critical learning aid to come out in the field in years and thus preparing future teachers for the demands of the classroom. Based on a whole-part-whole approach, this text is organized around a logical 3-Part structure. Part I explores the reading and writing process and orients readers to think about classrooms as diverse learning communities. Part II delves into theoretical aspects of literacy including early literacy concepts, word recognition, comprehension, and reading to learn.The third and final section demonstrates how to "put it all together" to build reading and writing instruction for children grade level by grade level.
