|About the Book|
Built on a case-study approach to reading diagnosis, this classroom-based book features strong research, a theoretical foundation and a developmental, constructivist perspective of literacy. In this fourth edition, the authors offer an Instructional Approach that consistently helps the reflective practitioner connect diagnosis with instructional planning. It provides many more cases from actual students and classrooms than other diagnostic books, as well as a strong research and theoretical grounding for practice. The book introduces readers to early literacy screening, running records, informal reading inventories, miscue analysis and much more. For teachers and practitioners and students training to work in reading assessment.
