The science of reading meets the art of teaching readers. Do you have the knowledge and instructional ability to effectively teach foundational skills and to support students who shown signs of reading difficulties? It is a tall order and one that challenges many primary grade teachers. This title builds on decades of evidence and years of experience to help teachers understand and apply the science reading to Tier 1 instruction. The book includes: step-by-step descriptions of techniques for effectively teaching phonological awareness, spelling, phonics, vocabulary, and comprehension; specific Tier 1 activities, routines, and frameworks that build and strengthen word recognition and language comprehension; links to videos demonstrations and online resources; and clear, practical explanations of the science of reading to help teachers understand the fundamentals of the reading process, recognize how difficulties arise, and know how to address them.
