Reading For Life: High Quality Literacy Instruction For All

By Lyn Stone Last updated 2024/05/27


In Reading For Life, author Lyn Stone holds nothing back when sharing research and best practices for literacy instruction, and outlining why some past beliefs and practices have to go for the sake of our students and their reading and writing development. Section 1 covers structured literacy components such as oral language, phonological awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary and comprehension. Section 2 provides background on the “Reading Wars”, Section 3 includes chapters such as “Cults and Catchphrases” and “Snake Oil: The Disappointing Truth”, and Section 4 is comprised of chapters delving into best practices for teaching reading and writing.
