Editorial Reviews

Review

“Breaking the Code is a consice manual addressing the what, when, why, and how to reading and writing development....Gentry has thought of everything, creating wide margins that allow readers plenty of room for writing insights for future reference. This book would be an excellent resource for anyone who works with early or struggling readers and is a must for new teachers.”–Childhood Education

Format: Paperback
Breaking The Code: The New Science Of Beginning Reading And Writing by professional development provider and former elementary teacher and university professor J. Richard Gentry offers a rather comprehensive understanding of the science behind children's seemingly sudden understanding of reading and writing. Aptly introducing varying constructs, tips, and guidance for teachers and parents supporting children through the early years of learning to read and write, Breaking The Code combines neurological and psychological studies with practical classroom knowledge and experienced-based wisdom in an innovative and concise exploration of early childhood literacy development. Breaking The Code is very highly recommended to all teachers, parents, and counselors of young elementary level or below children for both its scholastic and detailed approach to children's psychology in literacy and reading comprehension.

Breaking the code is a wonderful resource for elementary educators. Richard Gentry's research, experience, and style of presentation make it a must for the elementary reading teacher. He is current and very much in tune with the way children learn to read.

Was a required textbook, overpriced, for very little information. Served it purpose of selling teachers, but offering little to students.
