"If you are a literacy educator looking for solutions, this book is just what you need! Whether it's the CCSS, new literacies, struggling readers, or other key literacy topics, this book provides up-to-date, evidence-based information. With end-of-chapter activities to draw readers in, this book is a powerful tool for school-based professional development efforts and graduate courses in literacy programs."--Mariam Jean Dreher, PhD, Department of Teaching, Learning, Policy, and Leadership, University of Maryland, College Park

"This remarkable work shares critical knowledge about important aspects of literacy instruction and learning. Each chapter of the fifth edition intertwines connections to the CCSS to help readers understand how the practices resonate with the standards. Throughout, the contributors suggest ways to accommodate and differentiate instruction so that all students are successful. I love the way every chapter showcases ways to promote active, engaged learning for all aspects of literacy instruction and learning."--Diane M. Barone, EdD, Foundation Professor of Literacy Studies, University of Nevada, Reno

"The fifth edition has been updated to identify and explore significant literacy issues encountered by today's educators, such as RTI, the CCSS, close reading, text complexity, and more. Among the book's contributions is its reclaiming of the term 'best practices.' Rather than focusing on particular teaching strategies that are assumed to be universally appropriate for all children, best practices in this text are contingent on teacher expertise. Offering a rich array of strategies for crafting high-quality literacy instruction that can meet the needs of individual children, the book addresses everything from phonics instruction to online literacies. Literacy educators will find important lessons that they can adapt, implement, and explore in PreK-8 classrooms."--Catherine Compton-Lilly, EdD, Department of Curriculum and Instruction, University of Wisconsin-Madison
