Reading Basics for All Teachers: Supporting the Common Core guides teachers as they provide literacy instruction in every subject area. The components of the reading process are analyzed and provide the reader with an understanding of foundational reading skills as well as the shifts in literacy instruction. With the increased importance of complex texts and the use of textual evidence in support of comprehension, every teacher needs to be prepared to champion literacy development. Each chapter analyzes one of the strands of the literacy process. The characteristics and impact of oral language, phonological awareness, decoding, phonics and word analysis, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension are addressed in depth. The strands that students must master to become proficient readers are examined in each chapter. Classroom visits and literary connections help the reader visualize the strands' impact on instruction. Then the overarching why is addressed by analyzing research supporting the instruction in each of the strands. Assessments and activities are incorporated to support the understanding and implementation of each strand in order to move readers from theory to practice. As readers tie the strands of reading together to form an understanding of the entire process, they will see how their instructional practices can impact effective literacy instruction in every subject area.

MEDIA REVIEWS
While this book is most suited for school librarians and teachers involved in literacy, it is an interesting read for public librarians who may not be familiar with early literacy struggles and teaching strategies. For public librarians, reading this book will give them surface knowledge of teaching literacy to students. Reading Basics for All Teachers examines readers of all ages, however, the primary focus is on younger readers (elementary school age), although the activity strategies could be aged up for older (middle school and high school age) struggling readers. If a professional is interested in gaining further knowledge of early literacy, this is a great starting place. * VOYA *

Theories, easy to implement strategies, and activities help to deepen the reader's understanding of the reading process. Learning to read and comprehend rigorous texts are complex and ever developing processes that are adeptly addressed. This book will help teachers meet the rigors of 21st century literacy. A knowledgeable teacher can make all the difference in student success! -- Carol Todd, PhD, Rio Salado College
Reading Basics for All Teachers: Supporting the Common Core by Melinda Carver and Lauren Pantoja, effectively addresses classroom visits and literary connections to help readers envision the strands' impact on instruction. Moreover, the book provides leaders and teachers with useful assessments and activities to support the understanding and implementation of each strand to move from the theoretical ideal of each strand to the practical reality of the classroom. -- Andrea M. Nelson-Royes, EdD, educational researcher and author of "Success in School and Career: Common Core Standards in Language Arts K-5"
In Reading Basics for All Teachers: Supporting the Common Core, Carver and Pantoja provide the necessary link between what teachers do and research supports as necessary components for literacy success. Readers will find each chapter full of engaging strategies that are evidence-based. This book is much more than a comprehensive set of strategies -- it is a necessary handbook that will help teachers make informed and effective decisions about Common Core implementation with creative and successful results. This book is a gem with techniques that are immediately applicable in the classroom. -- Kathy Perez, professor emerita, Saint Mary's College of California, consultant, and author
