Quick Overview

With more than forty years of experience in the field,
David Booth is one of our foremost authorities on teaching literacy. In this
expansive survey, David answers question from teachers like you about turning
research and theory into effective best practice. Teachers will find the
answers they need and can use on almost any topic from phonics and words walls,
using traditional texts to comics, songs and the internet, and using testing as
a teaching tool to creating a classroom community that is both diverse and
welcoming. But this is more than just a guide - it's also the compelling story
of one teacher's journey through literacy. David writes frankly about what has
worked and not worked for him over the years, and how what looks good on paper
may need to be adapted for a real classroom.
