Now in its Fourth Edition, this popular textbook is still the most comprehensive resource on the oversight of literacy programs (PreK-12). With chapters written by experts with years of experience in schools, this new edition has been completely updated to incorporate current views about the literacy field in relation to governmental changes and regulations such as the No Child Left Behind Act. Offering specific guidelines that literacy leaders can use to improve their programs, the text covers selecting materials, assessing the quality of teachers, providing staff development, working with different types of learners, and incorporating writing and technology.
