Incorporate a multi-tiered approach to literacy instruction using a culturally responsive approach!
Literacy experts, Robin Wisniewski, Gay Fawcett, Nancy Padak, and Timothy Rasinski, explore the major components essential to creating an effective literacy program that supports all students. The authors present teachers with easy-to-implement instructional strategies and research-based practices to assess students' cultures and reading skills, as well as teachers' instruction and diversity readiness. In particular, the authors focus on identifying effective elements of instruction and offer suggestions for instructional modifications in the classroom.
The series, Evidence-Based Instruction in Reading, is a professional development program designed to help teachers meet the literacy instruction guidelines as identified by the National Reading Panel (2000). Each of the books in the series focuses on one key component: learners with special needs, phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension and offers recommendations for incorporating appropriate reading materials, fostering productive home-school connections, and promoting a desire for students to learn to read and write throughout the five part series. This coverage makes this series the perfect professional development resource for teachers in the elementary classroom!

A literal treasure trove of amazing resources...especially the technology resources. The authors clearly have a grasp on what teachers need. I am very excited to share these with the teachers at my school!

This book will be a terrific and timely tool for teachers who work in schools with any number of ELL students. I would both buy and recommend this book to others because the instructional strategies are not very different from what we use with all students. They key is in the chapter on assessment-which is getting to know the students before planning the instruction. We don't do that often enough for any of our students.

This book is unique in its approach-how refreshing!
It addresses a much-needed segment of our learning community.
This is an important book which all teachers of EL's should read because it encourages us to be not just culturally sensitive, but culturally reflective.
There is much in this book which would be useful to me as a classroom teacher, particularly since, like many of today's teachers, many languages are represented in my classroom.
