Book Description: This position paper contends that the whole language approach to reading instruction has been disproved by research and evaluation but still pervades textbooks for teachers, instructional materials for classroom use, some states' language-arts standards and other policy documents, teacher licensing requirements and preparation programs, and the professional context in which teachers work. The paper finds that many who pledge allegiance to "balanced reading" continue to misunderstand reading development and to deliver "poorly conceived, ineffective reading instruction." It argues that "rooting out whole language" from reading classrooms calls for effort on eight separate fronts. The paper describes what whole language is, why it is contradicted by scientific studies, how it continues in education, and what should be done to correct the situation. (Contains a glossary and 57 notes.) (NKA)

Book Description: "Teaching reading and writing effectively is a great responsibility. It's one of the most critical responsibilities teachers have because literacy makes a huge difference in students' lives-good readers and writers have many more opportunities afforded to them throughout their school years and beyond. Learning to read and write well closes the achievement gap among students, affecting not only their academic success but also their future. This text, Literacy for the 21st Century: Balancing Reading and Writing Instruction, 8e, provides a vision for reading and writing instruction. It covers the fundamental components of literacy, illustrates how to teach skills and strategies, supports digital teaching and learning, identifies how to differentiate instruction, and teaches you how to meet the diverse needs of students by scaffolding instruction so all students can be successful. More than ever, we need capable teachers to assure our students will become literate early on, grow as readers and writers, and quickly catch up when they fall behind their peers"--
