Reviewers Still Love Reading Strategies and Practices:
Our students like the wide variety of strategies offered in the book. They also like the fact that the book is not geared just toward at-risk students, or gifted students, but offers ideas that can work with many various ability levels.

I have such respect and admiration for the daunting feat that the authors have managed to accomplish, they have taken the latest and greatest research and compiled virtually all the information relevant to reading methodology. It is a gift to our profession. Armed with this book, a teacher would be equipped with all the tools necessary to teach reading.

I have chosen this book for my courses first because the authors are leading scholars in the field of literacy and have done extremely well in presenting different types of strategies and practices. The book provides in-depth descriptions of many strategies and practices that my courses cover. Additionally, my students have found the description for each strategy/practice very readable and comprehensive, and the suggestions and ideas from the book are very applicable to their teaching.

What distinguishes this text from others is the breadth in its coverage of models. I know of no other text that describes 87 different models used in literacy instruction.
