"R.E.A.D" will help educators turn their students into strategic readers. It presents a collection of strategies based on the 5 + 2 essential elements of literacy instruction: oral language, phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, and writing. Each section contains a brief conceptual overview as well as specific strategies that can be used to facilitate the development of that literacy process. A graphic at the beginning of each strategy identifies when it should be used, the most appropriate group size, and the grade levels for which it would be most applicable. Additional references and/or other resources are also provided at the end of each strategy description to provide educators with more information. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
