In Brain Words, the authors share information about the reading brain, and how teachers can support its development. The book includes science-based, practical classroom activities for the teaching and assessment of reading and writing (including the helpful “Monster Test” which helps to determine a student’s developmental phase). This book is designed for educators in K through Grade 6, and is valuable for classroom educators as well as interventionists/special education personnel. It’s particularly helpful for those looking for more support with spelling instruction.
