From the Back Cover

An active learning tool with superior coverage of standards, Reading and Learning to Read, Seventh Edition, promotes a comprehensive approach to teaching reading and writing with an emphasis on research-based best practices, integrating technology, and accommodating the needs of diverse and struggling learners.  


The seventh edition of this best-selling book continues its commitment to preparing preservice teachers for the ever-changing literacy classroom.  A focus on meeting the standards of today’s research-based environment and new concepts and practices that enhance professional development, as well as a wealth of practical examples and references that exemplify the International Reading Association Standards for Reading Professionals, results in the most comprehensive and contemporary book on the market.

  • The burgeoning concept of new literacies is explored in the general text and in special boxes throughout the text.
  • New coverage of literacy coaches examines how coaches help teachers to develop effective skills for literacy instruction.

What Do Reviewers Say About Reading and Learning to Read?


“The chapter introductions are wonderful. I like the summary statements at the beginning of the chapters, the concept maps, the key terms and the vignettes that provide students a realistic context for what they will be studying in each chapter.”

—Beverly J. Boulware, The University of Texas at Arlington


“The major strengths of this text are its readability, well-organized content, clarity of writing, variety of support details (visuals, boxes, figures, etc.), well-balanced perspectives, valuable suggested resources and its clear understanding of real classroom issues and needs.”

—Edward F. Sacco, Framingham State College


“I appreciated the clear comparison of reading readiness and emergent literacy as well as the comprehensive view of fluency that puts prosody on equal footing with rate and accuracy.”

—Carolyn Jaynes, California State University, Sacramento


“MyEducationLab is an excellent feature that I have not seen in any other text. I am sure that preservice teachers would value this aspect.”

—Yvonne D. Taylor, Shippensburg University


“The word identification chapter has excellent information for looking at words in different ways and I love the fact that the authors are once again teaching the importance of the reading-writing connection by adding spelling as a reading skill.”

—Claudia J. McVicker, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville

I had to read this for one of my graduate courses and found it be filled with excellent strategies for implementing successful reading instruction in the classroom. The issues covered provide insights into reading methodologies, research into reading instruction and methods that have proven useful in promoting reading instruction in the classroom context as well as factors for successful reading outcomes. The language used in the textbook is accessible and easy to understand. This is a great reading resource for both teachers and parents.

I needed this book for a Literacy class for my education major in college. It did not come with MyEducationLab, but the book came within good timing and it came in the condition described by the seller. This book is really great! It has a lot of good information about how to teach children to read.

While I have no plans to be a reading teacher, (I teach math) this book was the text for a required course. It is a very informative book and has many useful strategies that teachers in all content areas can utilize to help those students who struggle with reading. Some of the strategies are just good teaching strategies, others are fun strategies that might make class a little more enjoyable.
